|Florida Green Roof ideas start with a client's idea, then to a sketch. Great projects start with a simple idea.|
Sometimes the idea may be shelved, but I suspect never forgotten. Once an idea is created the concept has been released to the universe and could be around for a very long time.

Some of the first issues we discuss include:
- Structural capabilities (the roof is reinforced concrete)
- City permitting requirements for landscape and stormwater
- Wind exposure
- Sun intensity
- Adjoining buildings, and
- so much more
But all journeys start with an idea. Like a seed, the first thought grows and begins to take root. Soon new forms appear. Over time the creation matures, one step at a time, beginning with an idea.
My advice to all green roof and living wall designers is, "dream and let ideas flow".
