greenroof.jpgThe Green Roof phenomenon is really starting to go mainstream with the big apple getting on board. There’s a great article in the New York Times which clearly outlines some of the benefits to adding various types of vegetation to rooftops. It’s especially timely given the recent heatwave that has stricken the city.
