Mason’s Vegetated Roof:

In 2006, George Mason University constructed its first vegetated roof located on the Fairfax campus, outside of Research I building. The facility covers an area of approximately 1030 ft filled with a variety of hardy and aesthetically pleasing plants that seamlessly blend into existing landscaping. The filtration properties of this facility help to eliminate pollutants while reducing storm water runoff.
