Lush, Evergreen and Stormwater cleansing extensive green roofing !!!

Green roofs may hold the key to cleaning up Florida's Stormwater. The evergreen, frost and humidity tolerant plants shown here drink up the average typical rainfall, oxidizing pollutants and nutrients and breaking them down into harmless components.

Just think - if every house along the St, Johns River were to install a low-cost, low maintenance extensive green roof ($ 4-6.00 per square foot) then imagine how clean our St. Johns would soon become!

These plants will soon be blooming and setting seed. Watch for updated pictures. And check out MetroVerde for more info on low cost green roofs!
