Minimal Weight Requirements on a New Auditorium Roof | Shade-Loving Plants FTW!


Nazareth High School recently put in a new auditorium, over which they decided they wanted to build a green roof. The spot was located directly over the A/V and band room, which had a delicate structure and stringent weight requirements.

We worked carefully to ensure that the growing media could accommodate the plants without causing any damage to the roof. Because it was so shady, we had to leverage plants that can cope with minimal daylight and still look good.

The resulting garden is green and lush, and viewable from the classrooms opposite.
