The owners of this residential roof contacted Living Roofs, Inc. to help them improve the view from an upstairs sun room. Originally, the large window from the upstairs room shared a periphery of air ducts, black tar, and sparse gravel. Living Roofs, Inc. designed and installed the extensive green roof to blend a once unattractive structure into something alive and part of the surrounding landscape. The owners enjoy watching the many birds that visit the roof to rummage for food every day.
Completed on May 3, 2009, the green roof is the Living Roofs, Inc. extensive system. It has 4 iniches of growing medium and was planted with a mix of Sedums and other drought hardy perennials.
