A year and a half later, and amidst what is for many one of the driest years in decades, this LiveRoof brand green roof in Dublin, OH is performing great! The Dublin Community Recreation Center is a beautiful, accessible example of successful green roof implementation.
The site features a blend of Sedum species for year-round coverage, and rain barrels on the roof collect and store rainwater for irrigating the green roof during dry weather.
This Week Community News recently published a feature on the green roof. From the article:
“We know (green roofs) result in energy savings,” said Michelle Crandall, director of administrative services.
“We did some temperature measurements of the roof before we put in the green roof and after and we know it was drastically lowered … it’s pretty astounding.”
