CLIENT  – South East Water

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT  – Aspect Studios

PROJECT BUILDER  – ProBuild

DESIGN & INSTALL  – Fytogreen Australia

COMPLETION  – September 2015

Completing works on the new South East Water headquarter building, Fytogreen installed the green roof on Level W1, the full shade eastern garden on the ground floor, and the tiered entrance garden which follows the building’s escalator up 4 levels which contains trees up to 5m high at planting time.

Due to all areas being in a complete rain shadow, Fytogreen refined a suitable species list for the roof gardens. This rain shadow aspect meant that the irrigation design had to be very robust and supported by a flow rate monitored alarm system.

With the gardens all under the roof line, standard cranes could not be used for moving material easily to the respective areas. This required material to be placed where possible by Franna crane horizontally and the bulk of the material was blown in by We-Blow.

As our 12th extensive roof garden installation the roof garden on the MONA building is spectacular to match the architecture and scenery.

The banks of the Derwent could not be more beautiful and the stunning steel clad building sets a powerful statement prior to descending into what is Australia’s most remarkable museums. The owner’s home and the museums ground level roof is clad with an extensive roof garden.

This spectacular extensive roof garden was designed by Oculus Landscape Architect’s

and it nestles onto the main building merging natural structure with built structure. Using many coastal species and a range of succulents and strappy foliage the garden has minimal maintenance.

Also flanking the arrival staircase from the pier where the catamaran arrives from Hobart is a series of planter boxes with 4-5m high conifers and trialling over the sides are mesembryanthemum.

CLIENT – Shannon Bennett

DESIGN & INSTALL – Fytogreen Australia

COMPLETION – November 2016

Fytogreen was commissioned to convert Shannon’s new garage roof in to a green roof with planter boxes and raised vegetable gardens. This fabulous conversion totally transforms the front of the Victorian house located in South Yarra.

Planter boxes were planted with Ficus hedging and Bay trees to create a screen for privacy, while the green roof has a raised, circular vegetable and herb garden. At installation, Fytogreen used 340 plants made up of 18 different species.

The greenroof is overlooked from level 1 of the home, this practical use of the garage roof creates a decorative garden for the clients to enjoy.
