Friday, February 26, 2016

Green Roofs have become a very important component of sustainable urban development within the last 30 years. Growing environmental awareness and the striking economical and ecological advantages are the driving forces for this great success. At present, Green Roofs, sky gardens and rooftop gardens can be found in nearly all big cities around the world, benefiting the urban environment and their inhabitants. Some of the most amazing green roofs can be found in Singapore, California, Belgium, Poland, South Africa, and Vancouver. Landscaped roofs provide many positive effects for you, the life expectancy and the energy balance of a building, including energy efficiency, increased roofing membrane durability, fire retardation, reduction of electromagnetic radiation, noise reduction and marketing.

Hotel Vermont Green Roof - 5 Months After Installation

Monday, July 22, 2013

Hotel Vermont’s Green Roof was installed by our Vermont landscaping company at the end of March.  Just 5 months after the Burlington, Vermont installation both roofs have filled in nicely.  The Sedum on the lower roof is colorful and thriving and the more substantial shrub and perennial planting on the upper roof looks great too!

Hotel Vermont Green Roof Phase 2 -Curb

Friday, March 29, 2013

This Vermont landscape company set the Granite curb into place a few days ago to retain soil on Hotel Vermont’s larger green roof.  The use of granite curb will allow us to get slightly more soil in designated areas resulting in the use of larger plant material in these specified beds. Our landscaping crew also installed root barrier to prohibit the roots for damaging the roof of the structure in any way.

The 2013 Landscaping season has officially started for this Vermont Landscaping company! The first landscape projects of the year are the green roofs for Hotel Vermont.  Just before the large snowstorm last week, our crew had completed the installation of the smaller roof.  This installation consisted of installing a root barrier, specially blended soil, and mixed variety sedum sod.
