The article presents the results of research into urban landscaping with reference to surface runoff management in built-up areas. The study determines the balance of coated surfaces in mass residential buildings in the city of Yekaterinburg in its historical development. The results suggest an increasing trend in asphalted surface area and clarifies surface runoff factor values. Recommendations are provided for developing environmentally justified methods of urban landscaping to ensure comfortable living conditions in such areas.

Key words: urban microclimate, surface run-off factor, watertight coatings, balance of coatings, mass apartment housing
