One of our neighbors installed a new roof a few months ago and it is looking fabulous. I don't know what kind of grass they planted up there, but it sure looks healthy.

|Will these roofs handle the loads? And what about property insurance? Do you need approval from your lender to attempt this?. The roofs I've seen are pretty but what if a homeowner wants scotch broom up there?|

|@Erik - Troy says he did that one, too.|

|Troy told me that the grass greatly extends the life of a roof. It negates the harmful effect of heat from the sun - the greatest threat to any roof.
You can't get any greener than having a grass roof! Awesome!
(but I wouldn't want to mow it)

|That reminds me, I actually saw a "Flymo" at Troy's place! I wonder if that's what he uses. (Either that or it was part of some personal hovercraft project.)|
Hello! I'm Heather and I'm a bit manic about Tacoma.
I'll probably be blogging about my experiences in Tacoma as they relate to the environment (natural and built), social (in)justice, community building, economic development, bio-diesel, public transit, biking, gardening, home improvement, food & wine, and my little family (me, my husband, one dog, one cat). This is my first attempt at writing a blog - so please bear with me.
