|A private/public partnership, the Victorian Desalination Project represents the largest public sector investment in water infrastructure in Australia?s history. Victoria's new desalination project is covered with a living tapestry of indigenous plants that reflect the changing seasons and environment. The 263 hectare site will become a re-vegetated native parkland, and the vegetation on the living roof reflects this commitment.|
An important part of the project's landscape architecture, 98,000 native plants cover the roof spanning over 26,000 m2. The roof slopes vary considerably, from 1 - 22%. Designer and installer Fytogreen maintained several test beds at various slopes during the research phase to test appropriate plants for wind and vegetatiion type.
