Yesterday we took advantage to poke around houses in our neighborhood through The Sustainable Backyard Tour. While most yards weren't too revolutionary, there are a few noteworthy projects from the yards I visited.
Above is a bicycle rack made from an old fence that had been thrown away. I have no idea how many hours went into restoring and constructing, but I was impressed with the final.
Below is the roof of a garage. Learning about green roofs was really interesting. It's like a giant terrarium! Benefits include reducing temperature 50%+, longer roof life span, increased real estate value, better water drainage, and storing hot/cool air inside the structure. Isn't it cool (literally and figuratively!)?
Here's to you having a fantastic week!
