Plants can be very beneficial as we all know. Green roofs retain storm water, insulate the roof membrane from heat gain, and protect it from ultraviolet degradation to lengthen its’ useful life. Not to mention a pleasant view…. Green walls are an emerging industry and can be installed indoors and outside using different technologies. Bioswales are a pleasant tool of Low Impact Development to remove pollution from and retain storm water that can range in scale from acreage down to your yard.
Join us to learn about these technologies, where you will be sitting just inside the window from a green roof, and look out to a demonstration bioswale.
