Irrigation

By Yessenia Ojeda. Building a roof garden was no easy task. From lengthy tasks of propagating plants to building and transporting modules to planting and to hoping that our plants will survive. Today I wasn’t on our last class meeting I saw the meteorological equipment for the monitoring of different aspects of the atmosphere around the roof garden. Although, I wasn’t there to see this go I up, it is one of the last steps in concluding the building of the green roof. All that is left to do is test the sprinkler system, in order to ensure our plants are maintained when we are on break and ensure they are well established. As a student of the landscape architecture department, I don’t know much yet in terms of plants or of the various technologies surrounding green roofs, but this project has brought me that much closer to becoming familiar with them. Here are some photos of the running sprinkler system.
