Green Roof Remodel: End of Day 23

Yesterday was a wet, sloppy, cold day to be planting - but we planted nonetheless!  The first of the new green roof plants were plugged into the growing medium, starting with the ones on the north end (alpine section) and moving south.  And with predictions of hard freezing and possibly snow on Thursday night, we're working as fast as we can to get these plants in the ground.

And lots more to do!

  1. That is a very welcome re-definition of rooftops. Greeneries would certainly help in attuning a home with the immediate environs. What you can only worry about next is making the roof itself durable enough to carry the plants, as well as give cover to the interiors in the most fundamental way. Thanks for sharing! All the best!
