GPW: Martha’s Vineyard Hospital Rooftop Healing Gardens

GPW: Martha’s Vineyard Hospital Rooftop Healing Gardens

The Rooftop Healing Gardens function as a “wellness” area for patients, which posed an exciting challenge for Weston Solutions’ Northeast GreenGrid team. Weston worked extensively with landscape architects Horiuchi Solien to decide on a plant mix including grasses, perennials, and sedums that are proven to be reliable in the Northeast climate and that bloom at various times during the season. The healing garden not only provides a beautiful, accessible space, but also reduces storm water runoff and attracts beneficial pollinators such as butterflies and bees. The combination of ocean views and various blooming plants provide a tranquil place for patients to enjoy, with the added benefits of extending the life of the waterproofing membrane, reducing CO2 in the air, and improving the quality of storm water that percolates through the system.
