Very nice! How much would the fence be to fabricate and install per SF?

i assume you are referring to the railing...this is a roof garden so the guardrail is required by code. the railing is custom steel and stainless steel cable with an ipe' (hardwood) top cap. i hope this helps! thanks

I am looking for ideas for a non-penetrating guardrail for a flat roof patio. I have recycled rubber pavers. Is your guardrail bolted down (penetrating)? So far I have seen only worker safety ones that wouldn't work for children.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to 9 Cooling Rooftop Gardens
... reveals a grid-like installation of sedum green roof extending past the railings. The pavers and seating recall the previous example. The decision to install the railing is probably related to safety, making sure the residents — current and future — don't walk on the cantilevered section of the roof.
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Living Roofs Crown Green Design
Prevegetated mats. Consider prevegetated mats for your green roof project. Modular units of substrate plus rooted plants simplify installation once the proper structure and waterproofing are in place. A carpet of mixed stonecrop (Sedum) varieties creates a low-muss, low-fuss green roof.
