Water is essential for plant growth. In a world where climate is changing this resource is becoming scarce and expensive, therefore it is important to value water and to use it wisely. This subject develops students’ understanding of the relationship between achieving optimal plant growth in an urban environment through the appropriate and responsible supply and application of water and design options to maximise the use of water. It does this by identifying plants’ water requirements and determining how and when to water and by implementing water sensitive design strategies such as rain gardens and bioswales.
