A collaboration between Omni Ecosystems and Recover Green Roofs resulted in a stunning multi-tier meadow system on the Harvard Business School's McArthur/McCollum Hall. The installation marks New England's first comprehensive green roof. 


From our friends at Recover:

The roof was planted with a variety of native species desirable for pollinators and seeded with a mix of quick-to-germinate annuals and flowering herbaceous perennials. Many of the seed species are commonly used as cover crops to improve soil conditions, reduce soil erosion, and provide habitat for beneficial insects. Germination began 3 days after seeding, and within several weeks the roof developed into a lush meadow of flowering buckwheat, calendula, aster, milkweed, clover and ripe radishes.
