Lafayette Ave.

This is a simple green roof on a front porch just of off Lafayette Avenue in Buffalo. It will help ensure the air blowing into the second floor of this house is cool in the summer and will give the owner green space to look out on from her home office. It is planted with a variety of sedum, some allium and prickly pear cactus. We discovered pretty quickly that the area under the eaves never got water and the plants under there failed, so we planted cactus. After a year the cactus seam to be taking, Now I’m just waiting to see a scorpion.
