Green Roof Palo Alto
It’s about time those Stanfordies got with the program and developed a homegrown sedum green roof.
“We were coming from a home with no insulation, and the idea of a green roof — literally a succulent garden growing out of a horticultural mixture spread directly onto the surface — eliminating the need for air conditioning was a huge attraction,” Melissa said….
(They) chose several varieties of sedums and simper vivums, both of which spread, as well as non-invasive miniature ice plants and aloes. “I wanted to create an imitation of a larger landscape,” Schneider said.
“It takes about a year for everything to fill in,”
Alas, no photos. I think they meant Sempervivums, not that there’s anything wrong with simper succulents too.
