Green Roof: 1 Year and Going Strong

Zach Bearden, RLA, LEED® AP
Landscape Architect

Our SW+A green roof is alive and well.  The LiveRoof® product has survived a full year with absolutely no maintenance.  Actually we forgot about it.  SW+A may have one of the only modular green roof installations in Charleston.  We feel  that the LiveRoof® system is a truly sustainable product for new construction of energy efficient buildings, LEED projects, and suburban retrofits.

Green Roofs are great way to reduce operating expenses, add beauty to otherwise desolate roof space, and reduce storm water run off.  Thanks to Mike Semones of Riverbend Nursery for donating the modules for our test installation.
