|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.|
