The black redstart is synonymous with green roofs for me. Importantly, the story of the black redstart is a story of renewal. It is a story of colonising destroyed and forgotten parts of London.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking Amy Chomowicz from Portland (PDX) onto the wetland green roof at the V&A museum.
Health and wellbeing, as an issue in cities, is becoming an increasingly important agenda.
on a green roof tour of Switzerland, we noticed this excellent green wall on the Sihl City complex in Zurich. About five species of different climbers using a Jakob steel system.
The Grand Mosque has these excellent examples of rain gardens built over 1000 years ago.
This is Swiss style green walling. This has been installed relatively recently and the vegetation is doing well.
