A living laboratory for innovative green roof design.
New York’s 5-Borough green roof features distinct green roof systems side-by-side. Each varies in media, depth and plant selection. Planted in 2007, the roof is a living laboratory of what works best in the city’s climate. The lab has also studied green walls, vegetable/herb production, bee hives and solar panels.
