Workers prepared a modular tray on the roof in the morning and then installed plants in the afternoon.

Vegetative roofs offer a number of environmental and economic benefits, including: retaining more than 70 percent of rainfall to lessen the burden on municipal storm water management systems, lowering the home's heating and cooling costs and protecting the roofing material from wind, hail, heat and UV damage. The roof also provides a habitat for local birds and other wildlife.
