FUNCTIONAL BEAUTY
A peaceful green roof of sedum and hardwood decking sits atop this Vineyard home, which is located on a peninsula between two branches of a brackish pond. The roof adds a sunlit retreat to the building’s living space, in addition to absorbing and slowing rainwater over its footprint. 

Sedum grows abundantly without irrigation on this roof, in part due to the plant’s drought-tolerance, as well as the island’s weather patterns and humidity. Yellow flowers bloom in mid-summer, painting the roof with color and attracting pollinators like butterflies and honey bees.
