It looks like Festuca glauca ( blue fescue grass) to me. I hope this helps!

Are the upper planters waterproofed? What product was used to do so? - I am currently trying to find a way to waterproof 2nd floor planters that sit on a terrace above a living space. Please advise if you know a solution.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to 9 Cooling Rooftop Gardens
... Here we can see more of its appeal. The roof itself is pretty, but it also is located to be seen by the upper floors in the adjacent house, which has its own planters and a smaller patch of green roof.
Looking outside the same home, we see a green roof blanketed with wildflowers. Not only does this ecofriendly feature conserve energy, but it adds beauty.
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Living Roofs Crown Green Design
Rooftop tapestry. Colorful stonecrop varieties contrast with a white-leaf fescue on this colorful green roof.
Unexpected color. This living roof delights with magentas, silvers, cotton-candy pinks and golden flowers and foliage.
Mariana Pickering (Emu Architects) added this to What's LEED All About, Anyway?
3. Sustainable Sites (SS)Points available: 25 (minimum of 5 required)Points earned for: Managing the effect of the construction process and landscaping on your piece of land and neighboring environments.Things to keep in mind: There is a 5-point minimum requirement for this section, because the sustainability of a home doesn’t stop at the walls. To reduce your ecological footprint, you will need to look at your entire piece of land and even beyond. Your construction team will need to properly control erosion and storm water runoff to reduce the down the stream impact of building activities. In addition, your landscaping cannot include any plants that are considered invasive in your region.To earn points in this category, your design needs to consider everything from landscaping to pest control. For example, you can earn points by using drought-tolerant plants and by using permeable paving systems to allow rainwater to filter naturally through to the ground. You can also use innovative technologies like green roofs (sometimes called living roofs) to increase the amount of green space on a small lot.
The hills are alive! Are you more of a country dweller at heart? Bring an Alpine summer meadow to your rooftop by planting a living roof and you’ll instantly be transported out of the city. Get expert advice before you start, as your roof will need to be properly re-enforced, but then get as creative as you like with coloured and scented plants.
