This living roof was created in the marsh-sensitive ecology of Kiawah Island, SC, and will significantly reduce storm water runoff that would have filtered into an important buffer zone just feet away. The design minimizes the delineation between the roof structure and the surrounding environment, creating a harmonized view of the marshland.
