Living Roof

We have a living roof on the playhouse now!!! It is so very cool!

Last weekend Bryan and Hawk finished building the roof portion and setting up the drainage for it correctly. Today Bryan worked on getting the dirt up to the roof, patted it all down firm to keep it in place and then we started planting it. The upper roof is filled with succulent plants since we won't be caring for that level as much and has a lot of sun. The lower roof is filled with several varieties of lettuce and some strawberries. We can reach that roof easily and will actually harvest the foods from that level and replenish some. It is so neat and rare to see in the area. I can't wait until everything starts to grow and fill in more... than it will be quiet a sight!
