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.
