The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

How's this for a green roof? This Seattle, Washington garage was built for storage of a motorcycle collection for the couple that lives in the house in the upper part of the frame in the first photo.

The roof is planted with baby blue eyes, red clover, yarrow and fescues, along with a mixture of drought tolerant sedums. Like all green roofs, it provides insulation and reduces rainwater run-off.

We think this is a great application of a green roof. It helps to inspire the movement toward more green solutions. This one is beautiful.
