Designer of stuff…Maker of things

Environmental and attractive at the same time

   This idea reminds me of the ‘green roofs’ you see throughout downtown Portland.  I am deeply enamored with the idea of incorporating green spaces into our modern structures.  The benefits would out do the cost in such a short time.  Reducing the heat island effect, increased air filtration, over all esthetics…the list goes on.

     It would be simple to start in even the most concreted over city. 

    -Get hardy and drought tolerant varieties planted on top of the concrete medians on highways,

    -Use ground cover plants along sidewalks and in drainage systems.
