Green roofs

I'd noticed a new green roof installation a week or so ago, while previewing routes for the Garden Bloggers Fling (this was a detour) and thought it was spectacular.

I'd read about it awhile ago, but didn't know where it was.

It's part of a new community recreation center --  -- near the River Arts District in Asheville --t he link is to a Laurel of Asheville piece

Reading this interesting piece today about the benefits of green roofs in the NY Times encouraged me to return and take a few photos, with my gardening companion and gardening assistant in tow.

More than sedums on this roof!

  1. These are really cool roofs! I have been looking at commercial roofing companies because I'm getting some work done on my roof soon but I have never seen this before. Thank you for sharing this with us, I'm definitely going to talk to my wife about green roofs.


Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
