Green Roof Systems – It Works for Troy Wagner
A green roof system can go on any home!
As of the owner of this business since the early 1990’s and years of experience in installation, repair and replacement of thousands of roofs, my home has one of the greenest eco-roofs in the world!
It all came about for me and my home when I noticed that rooftops growing moss seemed to stop aging. In developing systems for both residential and commercial clients, we take into consideration every need that will allow the vegetation to thrive and flourish, and to bring about the benefits and desirable aesthetics.
Those considerations include, but are not limited to:
- Local rooftop environment
- Types and depths of substrates
- Root barrier
- Drainage system
I can tell you with firsthand knowledge that this system works for Troy Wagner, and the environmental benefits are simply undeniable! My eco-roof is the only known system that actually has a negative carbon footprint.

A Garden for Grass Roof Can Go On Any Home
Whether you are an eco-buff that prefers the simple ecological benefits, or you have a preference for aesthetic and economic benefits of an extended garden space, we can design both, and many more systems that can be appropriately installed on any home.
We do caution you, however, that an overall system involves a whole lot more than just huckin’ a bunch of soil and plants onto your rooftop! Deciding on your desire outcome is crucial from the beginning stages of planning to ensure that certain criteria can be met:
- Maximum load-bearing capacity
- Amount of maintenance (usually low to periodic)
- Need for irrigation
- Harmony of plant selection
- Type of substrate – the deeper the substrate level, the greater possibilities for design
- Budget considerations
Our grass roof installations offer environmental benefits and a beautiful tapestry that can complement the architectural design of most any home. They are generally low-maintenance. In the rare event of an emergency, we offer 24-hour residential service, including repairs, leak detection and maintenance.
