This small green roof system packs a punch both functionally and aesthetically on this fabulous mountain getaway home high up in the hills of Brevard, NC. The dense Sedum-based living roof covers multiple levels, including almost the entirety of the house's rooftop surface, its upper patio, and garage, offering maximal stormwater management benefits, roof membrane protection, and returning green space to the structure's footprint in the landscape. The Sedum plant community is also a veritable emerald jewel on the hillside, and is quite the sight to behold when seen from the slope above.
