The cover image visualizes two residential street scenarios. The bottom one depicts a typical conventional residential street in an automobile-dependent suburban location in New Zealand. Such streets have been perceived as ecologically unsustainable, antisocial, unhealthy, and aesthetically unpleasant. The top scenario shows examples of how residential streets can be improved through infrastructure retrofits, particularly by combining green and grey infrastructures and integrating various functions and services. Our analysis of the status of retrofit research suggests changing infrastructure compositions and a trend toward increased grey and green–grey infrastructure integration. However, while such retrofits are potentially able to increase the number and quality of landscape services that support human well-being, more substantial research is required to analyze their implementation and provide evidence for their success.
