Asheville, NC. (February 21, 2022) – Living Roofs, Inc., is a small firm that specializes in the design and implementation of green roofs and living walls, takes this beloved lyric to a new, literal level.
This hardworking, beautiful piece of infrastructure was recognized for its beauty and function. This roof continues to teach us so many lessons, including how green roofs promote biodiversity, reduce roof temperature, provide habitat and food sources for native pollinators, and reduce stormwater runoff.
The living roof over the Garage Apartments demonstrates how even a small roof can make a big impact on the ecological health of a city. This is a positive step towards developing an urban community that supports native pollinator populations, reduces heat island effect and allows the rain to evaporate and plants to transpire similar to as they would in nature.
