From growing vertical gardens to planting trees and creating pocket parks, many of Melbourne's laneways have enormous potential to become the city’s backyard. There are over two hundred lanes in the central city, making up an area of almost nine hectares. City of Melbourne's (CoM) Green Your Laneway program helps transform the city’s laneways into leafy, green and useable spaces for everyone to enjoy. As part of the program, CoM developed a world-first interactive map to show laneways that could go green, based on the amount of sunlight they receive, exposure to wind and physical characteristics.
