COMPLETION –  2009

The home-owner’s vision was to create a simple, environmentally sound roof garden on the roof of their home extension in the beach-side suburb of Mona Vale.

Although the garden has an irrigation system installed, it was established purely on rainfall and with cuttings from the sand dunes across the road.
After 12 months the irrigation system has never been used.

Within a short time the garden was established, providing visual amenity for the owners and neighbours.

“ We loved the end result, which transformed our backyard into a magical,
living oasis, reminding us of our very own beach.”
James Rosenwax, Property Owner

COMPLETION – 2011

Set in Melbourne’s Yarra Valley, Healesville is a popular tourist spot. In late 2010 Yarra Ranges Shire Council approached Fytogreen to assist with providing a green roof on a public amenity block in the heart of town.

Working together with the councils architects and designers for the development phase, Fytogreen was engaged by the builder, ADM Structures to build the eye-catching roof garden in March 2011.

Located in Green St, just near Maroondah Hwy in central Healesville, the freshly renovated amenities block now has a distinctive greenroof with an extensive profile ranging from 100mm deep (on the edges) and upto 140mm for the remainder of the roof garden.

Using native ground covers and grasses, Fytogreen’s botanist selected a plant pallet of 7 different species including Lomandra, Correa, Dianella, Brachyscome and Dichondra. This created a small but colourful extensive greenroof with dramatic visible seasonal changes.

Beare Park on Sydney harbour is a scenic local park with a heritage background.

As part of the landscape regeneration of the park, Sydney City Council required that the amenities block set against a rock face on the south east corner of the park be beautified.

The aim was to make the building more sympathetic and attuned to the local landscape whilst retaining the existing structure.

The team transformed the 46m2 concrete slab roof into a stunning extensive roof garden mounded to semi-extensive in areas to accommodate deeper plantings.

The garden profile depth is generally a 120mm with mounding to 250mm, from waterproof membrane to the top of the stone mulch, comprising the Fytogreen proprietary extensive lightweight roof garden system. The planting is a showcase of succulent varieties.

The amenities block was transformed into a stunning extensive roof garden, attuned to the local landscape.
