Transplant the green roof and living wall#2 by Siyu Yu

Transplant the green roof and living wall

This semester we replanted 9 modular of the green roof and living wall #1 with vegetation and crops aimed at research on vegetation establishment on a modular green roof and living wall in south-central Texas. We took off the succulent, bahia grass, and so forth. After that we planted strawberry, mint and lettuce, etc.
