Green roofs in Fremont

By master · September 23rd, 2010 · 1 Comment

Seattle Public Utilities and the Department of Planning and Development have just wrapped up a report on green roofs across the city.  Several of the green roofs are here in Fremont including ones at Ross Playground Shelterhouse, Block 40, and Epicenter Apartments.  The city has also put together a self-guided tour map of green roofs that you can check out for yourself, including the one at Ross Playground (pictured below).

    Green roofs are great but it is not easy to maintain them plus they are heavier than standard roofs.
