Green Roof Butterfly Habitat

This Semi-Intensive Green Roof installed by Vertical Landscape Architects was designed for butterfly habitat. When mature it will attract Monarchs and other butterfly species with butterfly friendly plant species. Driftwood and other materials on the roof will provide habitat for important pollinator insects and improve urban ecology while keeping the garage cool during summer months and providing a unique visual amenity for owners of the house and surrounding residents. It is very rewarding to hear how much adjacent neighbours appreciate views to a roof garden rather than an asphalt rooftop.
