It's great for shading to mitigate the summer heat island effect, but long-rooted grasses might be more effective in aiding surfacewater infiltration, especially since you might have bare soil otherwise under some shade trees. I'm sure a combo is probably ideal.
Most importantly though, LEGALIZE CHICKENS in Peoria please!
