Green Roof Remodel: End of Day 22

The Berry Prairie is transforming.  Gone is the flat landscape that was, here are the hills and plains of the new roof.  The plants we bought new (as opposed to transplanted off of the roof) all arrived late last week, and today we began laying them out.  We are creating three distinct planting zones: alpine (mountains), foothills and plains/prairie.  The planting begins in the morning tomorrow!

Here are a few photos of the progress today:

End of day - doesn't even look like we made a dent in the plant pile!  So many left!

We have lots more work to do, and it'll start happening quickly now that the plants and the landscaping folks are here. Stay tuned for updates!
