I've never seen this before

New place in town. I thought their landscaping was pretty cool.

Any idea as to whether its drip/sprinkler irrigated up there??? Im also curious how they plan on maintaining the specimens on the roof??? It would also be interesting to see how the architects designed the roof to hold that much weight per sq ft.

Ver cool twist on what new trends are coming forth.

That IS interesting. In Door County in Wisconsin (specifically Egg Harbor, I believe), there's a restaurant that has grass on the roof, and 4-6 goats that graze on it daily!! Very odd seeing goats grazing on a rooftop.

Kris, I plan on dining there soon, so I'll get as much info as possible, and perhaps a maintenance contract

Looks like you could use a pair or really long extended hedge trimmers.

I bet there is some serious structure under that roof. That is different.

That looks very cool ...thanks for sharing it here... once did a job on the roof of a apartment building ... crane and elevator was used to bring material up ... nice to do something different for a change.

What a coincidence! I'm starting a project that is a roof top terrace with lots of planters. This is a penthouse on the 14th floor of a very famous condo in DC. We are using a crane to get things up there on Saturday. Engineers are involved in determining acceptable weight loads. Lots of criteria for getting it right. We are even installing irrigation into the planter pots and boxes.

Here's my coincidence; Stonehenge mentioned an Egg Harbor out there, and I grew up in Egg Harbor Township, NJ. LOL

There was an article in one of the trade mags a long time ago about a job much like you are describing Lanelle. That's big business in a lot of cities. Good luck & have fun with it.
