The flat part of my roof (over the kitchen & long hallway) has always been planned to be planted. I found a dealer (Weston Solutions) in Anchorage for the GreenGrid modules who was willing to sell me the empty modules and rubber path pavers (thanks Kim!). The first set arrived last month. http://www.greengridroofs.com/
|Pavers and empty modules unpacked.|
|Growth Medium with some top soil added|
And I found some of the spunbound poly root barrier I needed on line. That finally arrived on Tuesday. I'm going to use 2 layers of root barrier, 1 square inside each of the modules, and then a layer on the roof, to set the modules on. Roots growing through the modules can damage the roof membrane.

Much more to follow as this progresses.
