GREEN ROOF MAINTENANCE
 
A 3,000-square-foot green roof at Whipple Riverview Place provides stormwater mitigation and insulation benefits to a residential complex located minutes from downtown Ipswich. The green roof is a joint effort by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and the North Shore Housing Trust, which purchased the building from the town to create low-income senior housing.

Recover Green Roofs inherited maintenance services at Whipple Riverview Place and has been making three to four visits each year since 2013 to keep the green roof system working optimally.

Our maintenance visits include plant vitality assessment and replacement, component inspection and adjustment (drains and edging), weed and invasive species control, pest control, debris removal, soil testing, organic fertilization, upkeep of vegetation-free zones, and documentation and submittal of maintenance services.
