Real. Beautiful. Roofs.

February 9, 2009

For anyone interested in pursuing a green roof, now may be the time. Soon there may be an additional financial incentive to install a green roof on your new or existing structure. This is on top of all the other wonderful benefits of a green roof.

[January 30, 2009] Senator Maria Cantwell from Washington State introduced the Clean Energy Stimulus and Investment Assurance Act of 2009 (S.320) legislation on Monday January 26 that, if adopted, would provide financial incentives for commercial and residential green roof installation. Green Roofs for Healthy Cities and the American Society of Landscape Architects worked together to help draft the section of the bill that is focused on the green roof incentive.

    As a landscape designer, with a degree in landscape architecture, the idea of green roofs is facinating, but I have yet to encounter an opportunity to build one. Are there good classes available on their design, construction, and plant selection?


  2. Green Roofs for Healthy Cities offers training and classes. I believe they also offer accreditation. Check this link http://www.greenroofs.org/index.php. Good luck. Green those roofs, they need it.
