Hudson Street Green Wall Completed

Green Team at Green Roof Technology, - Monday, November 04, 2013
2714 Hudson Street in Canton, Baltimore, MD.

2714 Hudson Street's exterior greening was completed today.  The project involved two main components, the green wall and four new tree pits.  

Three large custom-made galvanized steel planters were installed below a Carl Stahl 'Green Cable' System to create the green wall.  Each planter was planted with a variety of perennial vines, shrubs and grasses, including Wisteria, Lonicera, Clematis, Rose and Pennisetum. 

Special thanks to Elemental Metalworks and Flying Colors for their excellent help with the construction of the planters.  

Four large tree pits were dug and planted with Chanticleer Pears.  The soils were replaced with an urban tree pit soil blend from Stancills Inc.

If you happen to be in the area, stop by and let the people at great people at Green and Healthy Homes Initiative know how awesome their new greenery looks.      



The Time is Right for a Natural Swimming Pool

Green Team at Green Roof Technology, - Tuesday, May 21, 2013

Another beautiful weekend has passed us by.  The sun was shining high in the sky and it was very warm, bordering on hot.  Thankfully Memorial Day is just around the corner and pools all across the country will be opening.  Cooling off will simply be a dip away.

Like many of my friends, traditional chlorine pools no longer interest me in the least.  They are actually a thing to be avoided.  I am lucky to be from central Pennsylvania where fresh mountain-fed streams and lakes are abundant.  Whenever I’m home in the summer, my first thought it to go to the mountains and find an ice cold stream or ‘dam’ to swim and relax in.  The water is refreshing and the complete immersion into nature is just what the soul requires. 

Unfortunately, this level of natural luxury isn’t available to all, whether due to geography or downstream pollution.  For those who do not have easy access to streams and lakes, a natural swimming pool is the next best thing.  Natural swimming pools can be designed for sizes ranging from single-family backyards to public town pools. 

Natural swimming pools are a careful orchestration of various plant types that work together to filter the water to pristine levels.  This system is cared for much like a water garden and is great for those with sensitivity to chlorine.  Natural swimming pools are naturally filtered and cleaned, providing an unparalleled swimming experience in the comfort of your own garden

These fantastic pools are stunning all year round, during the winter they can freeze without a problem and during the spring and summer the plants put on a glorious display of blooms.
