I spotted Tania’s blue bike store with its green roof from the other side of a main road and felt compelled to make a beeline for it. Tania was working in her garden and explained that the roof was the work of her boyfriend, who had made it over three weekends. He followed instructions on Islington Council’s website.
It makes a change to see a green roof that isn’t covered in sedums. Tania said that the only problem is that she can’t see the plants that well from below as the shed is quite tall. She’s thinking of planting something trailing and bright next, like nasturtiums.
