To keep the heat down and solar production up, planting a garden around your rooftop solar array is a good idea.
Green walls (aka living walls), like green infrastructure, capture rain where it falls. Green wall luminary Patrick Blanc designed this wall at the Musée du quai Branly.

Chicago City Hall Rooftop Garden. In 2001, the roof gardens were completed serving as a test for the impact green roofs would have on the heat island effect in urban areas, rainwater runoff, and the effectiveness of differing types of green roofs and plant species for Chicago's climate. Noted "green" architect William McDonough designed the project, which is not open to the public.
Chicago - City Hall roof garden. The garden sits on the top of the 11-story city hall building and was first planted in 2000. The city says the rooftop garden/green roof consists of upward of 100 species in almost 20,000 plants.

A green roof, or 'living roof' really helps regulate the temperature of a house or building, keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. You can even graze your goats on them! #greenroof #architecture
There are two main types of green roofs. Intensive (labor-intensive) - Found on flat roofs and require about 4-24 inches of planting medium that is able to grow conventional lawns, vegetable gardens, small shrubs and even small trees. Intensive rooftops require sophisticated structural support and possibly irrigation. Typically
There are two main types of green roofs. Intensive (labor-intensive) - Found on flat roofs and require about 4-24 inches of planting medium that is able to grow conventional lawns, vegetable gardens, small shrubs and even small trees. Intensive rooftops require sophisticated structural support and possibly irrigation. Typically weigh 80-120 lbs. per square foot, fully saturated. Are often park-like gardens for public or private use.
My dream house---- A green roof, or 'living roof' really helps regulate the temperature of a house or building, keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. You can even graze your goats on them! Indeed: goats can climb ladders, they are quite agile! generally only grass or wild plants that do not require deep soil are used or found on living roofs, and it is better to plan a building from the beginning to accommodate a green roof, but you can also have plant boxes

Gutters with end caps can be used to make suspended planters inside or outside of the home. Simply cut the gutters to size, drill holes on both ends, and thread chain or tension wire through to create a hanging gutter garden. If you’re suspending the planter outdoors, locate it near a sprinkler or hose for easy maintenance.

20 Vertical Gardening Ideas for Turning a Small Space into a Big Harvest - Walden Labs
I seem to have containers and plants on my mind these past few days. With all this talk about , and slow movements towards, moving all I can think about are for some reason are the gardens I am FINALLY going to get to plant. Source Our new home will have garden space where I will (hopefully) have the ability to put a shovel into the earth to make holes to stick my plants in, but this new bungalow also has a lot of potential for some beautifulcontainer gardens. Source Source Source Source I personally love the pallet gardens and the rain gutter garden ideas. The shear innovation of turning something obsolete into something usable and beautiful never seizes to inspire me. Do you have gardens on your mind too?
