Green Roofs / Rooftops
Constructing vegetative roofs on commercial rooftops is growing trend in the U.S. and Canada. Studies have proven green roofs reduce energy use, capture storm water, improve air quality, protect the roof membrane, create wildlife habitat and add much-needed green space to cities. Bison offers green roof planning, designing and horticulture consultation to assure proper plant selection, seamless installation, and proper maintenance practices are executed.
