A Feast for the Senses
When designing green roofs which encourage human interaction it is important to keep in mind the 5 senses, taste, touch, smell, sight, and sound.
Biodiversity on Intensive Green Roofs
Intensive green roofs with great media depth and plant selection offer ample opportunities for biodiversity.  Ramps or tiered levels offer roof access to non-aerial fauna setting the stage for the introduction and interaction of the surrounding ecology.
Pittsburgh Goes Green
This past week Kat Harrold joined Ian Cooke of Monrovia and Mike Coraggio from EcoWalls for an ASLA green wall lecture series.  The trio gave an informative presentation on various things to consider from design phase to maintenance of green walls.
