It's an EPDM roof. We like it better because it's more flexible around obstructions. We've used the PVC just didn't think the fit and finish looked as good and haven't had any warranty problem with the rubber roofs. Good luck!

I have Birch envy. Too hot and dry where I live to plant these beautiful trees. What an interesting application, though.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to Keep Your Garden in Lines
Lines can certainly be conveyed by our planting choices. I love this contemporary use of two rows of white-bark trees (probably river birch or Aspen). This modern-day allée is formed by two parallel rows of trees. Notice how both rows have been planted in a linear strip of gravel within the lawn — a reinforcement of the line motif. This front lawn will look great even in the winter, when the tree branches are bare.
