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
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.
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.

Stunning! What is the red plant please?
The red plant is blood grass this is not a proper name but I believe it is a name you can look up to find it . It is very easy to grow and not real aggressive.
As an Architect I can appreciate the cylindrical shape of the roof, which in turn also immitates the covering of the chimney!
find this plant: JAPANESE bLOODGRASS
red and purple plants .... front yard?
mass plantings of blood grass...use in the burn or front drive
grass Imperata cylindrica 'Red Baron'. Planted here in blocks, they really are breathtaking. It's not the easiest to grow, needing full sun in a moist soil. Strangely, the color starts at the tips of the shoots in spring and gradually suffuses through the plant. It is worth remembering that leaves change

Voici un exemple typique de toit végétal extensif, avec du sédum en fleurs associé à diverses plantes. Remarquez le chemin qui le délimite : il s’agit d’une idée intéressante pour éviter de piétiner les plantes fragiles. Pensez au gravier, par exemple, pour vous déplacer sur le toit et accéder plus facilement
