Planting a Vegetative Roof


We placed an announcement on facebook to see how effective FB is at turning virtual connections to real life ones http://www.facebook.com/SouthernExposureHomes.  In the end my fellow Passivhaus designer Bokyung and her husband Min and their lovely daughters came out to our green roof planting event.

Ready for planting!

 

Sedums

We have eight different varieties of Sedums, some are deciduous and some are evergreen.  Some of them will disappear completely on the surface when winter comes and reemerge next spring.  All of them flower and should be really beautiful in a couple of months.

Planting

Here’s Bokyung planting the Sedums.

All planted

All planted.  It took eight of us (4 adults and 3 kids and 1 baby) about 2 hours to plant it all.  It was a great time and now we can all say, “we’ve planted a green roof.”

Thanks Bokyung and Min for coming out!
