Urban green space whose soil permeability is the main factor affecting hydrological cycle plays a very important role in promoting rainwater infiltration, replenishing groundwater and reducing peak flow. In order to enhance the storage and infiltration ability of soil, different types and contents of conditioner are added to study the laws of the changes in permeability of various soils. The results showed that straw and sawdust can effectively increase the permeability coefficient of soil. According to the comparison under the same conditions, the improvement effects of straw is slightly better than sawdust, but no order of magnitude difference. The sandy soil reformed by 3.6% Straw or 4.2% Sawdust and the loam reformed by 29.5% Straw or 30.2% Sawdust can meet infiltration requires of rainwater whose rainstorm recurrence period is 10 years. The clay is not suitable for urban green space soils with higher rainwater storage and infiltration requirements. The reformed green space can effectively reduce the runoff peak flow and delay the generated time of the runoff. The higher the content of the modifier, the more obvious the advantage of promoting the hydrological cycle and reducing the runoff.
