The Roof Is Alive! …with vegetation.

1300 square feet of the lower roof of the residence is covered in a pre-planted vegetated roofing system. The system consists of 3′ x3′ panels with pre-grown, drought tolerant sedums layed in a grid to form a cohesive surface of vegetation. The vegetated roof will preform several functions:
1. Reduce roof storm water runoff by more than 25%.
2. Reduce the heat island effect from the roof’s surface.
3. Increase insulation values of the roof assembly.
4. Provide an organic patio area for the Ellis.
