267m2 – Semi-Intensive Sloping Indigenous Roof Garden at Turrawarra Abbey
Fytogreen installed a 200mm deep profile picturesque roof top garden on the new Fire Shelter at Tarrawarra Abbey. Part of the roof garden includes a 22ø slope section with a 300mm deep profile. A total 2,100 plants were used, spread between 24 species.
As a response to the potential threat on extreme weather days, the green roof to this building can be wet-up via the sub soil irrigation system using site captured water with a pump on generator power.
