GreenroofsI fell in love with the idea of greenroofs as soon as I found out I had built one in 1996. I wrote my thesis in college on alternative technology and was thrilled when one was dropped into my lap. The first greenroof we constructed was on the roof of the Phillips Club hotel and is still there today. A simple verticle drainage board was specified as the "greenroof mat". This type of drainage board eventually evolved into a formal greenroof mat witht he addition of a third layer and drainage holes and can be purchased through a number of roofing manufacturers.
Over the years we have built and maintained acres of greenroof in New York City and state and have developed a good deal of expertise in this field. The album belpow covers some of my favorite projects.
