Going Green with Living Roofs and Living Walls
The concept of a living roof has existed for thousands of years. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, included multiple overhanging terraced gardens constructed on a building outside of modern-day Baghdad. Northern Europeans once chose traditional sod roofs as a means of insulating their houses.
Today, homeowners and commercial businesses in our area are embracing the concept of rooftop gardens and green walls for their homes and workplaces.
