Jane and her family have submitted their project as inspiration to many. The plan has been to renovate an 1940′s home into a Green and Gorgeous home, including a roof garden and green vertical wall element. Thanks Jane for bringing your wonderful journey/blog to us. It is truly a gift and we thank you for it!
Choose your plant species carefully. It goes without saying your locally indigenous/native plants must be selected and these should be water wise and heat tolerant. ~Jane
