Ecosystem Benefits from a Green Roof
How does the Green Roof Improve our Ecosystem?
Stormwater is filtered by the Green Roof
Water that hits the roof is filtered by the root systems. It also slows down the velocity of water, reducing erosion.
Root systems of native plants absorb & filter the water further
Cleaner water flows into the Boardman River
A healthier ecosystem is achieved naturally!

**This is an active research and demonstration garden maintained by local Master Gardeners in conjunction with Michigan State University Extension. We will be evaluating several native plant species for long- term survival and persistence. While we strive for beauty, we prioritize scientific research & the promotion of native species.
