To provide the Green Roof System to enable planting on the roof of the house


The green roof system was placed on a structural concrete rooftop slab. VersiDrain® 25P, drainage and water retention trays, were installed on the roof and covered over with a geotextile fabric to enable a lightweight, nutrient rich formulated soil medium (by Code Green) with a maximum of 2.5 inch thick to be installed on the trays. The plants were propagated off site prior to the commencement of the construction allowing the plants to grow during this period. Various grasses, Sedums, Delospermas, and other succulents were hand planted on the roof, which is un-irrigated.
