Dan and Naomi Sachs were looking to create green and garden space on their back patio for their young children. Living in downtown Chicago, green space is at a premium in the city, so they decided to bring the park home. Because the Sachs wanted an accessible and useable roof garden, the GreenTech System was a perfect fit. The system was able to comply with strict weight requirements imposed by the condo association, and the Sachs like the fact that their back yard could move with them if they ever moved.

The Sachs decided mostly on a turf grass application so the kids could have a soft natural space to play. GreenTech was able to design and install a green playground over their garage placing the GreenTech modules directly over the concrete slab. Native and drought tolerant plantings, including flowering perennials, were added later to enhance the bluegrass sod play area. From start to finish, this project was completed in two days.
