We are currently working with Pride Corner in Connecticut, distributors of LiveRoof to grow and then they have licensed installers of the system and plants.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Houzz Tour: Cabin Studios in the Landscape
Hook applied aspects of Mill Valley’s Mount Tamalpais to her design. From the vegetation of the mountain to the boulder-strewn terrain, the overall site reflects the flora of the mountain and Marin as a whole.“I take an educated and intuitive approach to the systems at play, whether it’s soils, slopes, grand trees or remarkable vegetation, or the orientation to the sun,” Hook says. “I see the roof as a microcosm of the slopes of Mount Tam. The design became a living mosaic, representing the variety of plants and plant communities on Mount Tam.”
Becky Harris added this to Higher Ground: 6 Spectacular Landscapes
The two studios, built in lieu of an attached addition onto the main house, tread lightly on the land, with a rooftop providing the space to garden. Learn more about rooftop gardens and green roofs
Laura Gaskill added this to 10 Tips for Earth-Friendly Home Renovation
2. Add a green roof. A green roof, which is basically a giant raised-bed garden placed atop a roof, can help cool the air, insulate the interior of your home, and even provide extra room to garden in urban areas where space is at a premium. Sound like a lot of trouble? You can install one on the roof of your garage. You will enjoy many of the same benefits, with lower cost and less effort.9 Cooling Rooftop Gardens
The lower cabin is a yoga studio; relaxation and inspiration begin atop its living roof.See more about these two woodland cabins
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Living Roofs Crown Green Design
Typical extensive green roof. Note the multiple components of the roofing system. The slower rate of runoff from a living roof allows more stormwater to percolate into the surrounding soil. A typical roof sheds water at high speed, increasing likelihood surface erosion. See more of this hillside property
Jen Dalley |||||||||||||| added this to How to Artfully Build a House on a Hillside
Although a challenge, a considerable grade change can provide easy access to rooftops. Roofs built adjacent to a hill can result in entire expanses of occupiable vegetated landscapes. The entire footprint of this house, initially borrowed from the hillside, has been restored on the roof.See more of this house
