The green roof plant design was a collaborative effort, with heavy input from the horticultural staff at FMG.  LiveRoof, LLC worked with the design firm, building owner, and the installation contractors to custom grow this green roof using the LiveRoof Standard and LiveRoof Deep systems.

LiveRoof, LLC custom grew the green roof modules for the Padnos Sculpture Garden over the summer of 2018.

LiveRoof modules were custom grown in the shape of the installation over the summer of 2018.
