It’s been a long while since I blogged due to incredibly busy; but I thought I’d give an update on our grass rooves.
As you may remember we built a garage with a sedum roof (below):
And when we laid the sedum it was (as you can see green).
A few moths later the roof started to turn red; we thought it was dying and all we could find from Google & the supplier was that the roof was in distress and that it needed a bit of rain and fertiliser. Now, the roof is in Mayo and we’ve had a good bit of rain recently. Nevertheless we did what was suggested and the roof remained red.
A couple more weeks go but and I inspected the roof yesterday. The red bulbs (like a cactus) are beginning to open up and small flowers are appearing:
The roof is still very red (which we’re now OK with) and a close-up of a section shows how it’s flowering:
So our roof isn’t dying! It’s flowering!
More on the grass roof over the underground section of our house later…
