Welcome to Breaking Ground Green Roof!

This blog documents the design and construction of Breaking Ground Contracting’s green roof project in an urban/industrial area of Jacksonville, FL. Take the journey with us as we post progress photos, upload green roof and permaculture resources and provide insight into the successes and challenges of this endeavor, Florida’s first commercial green roof that incorporates native species, rooftop permaculture and Florida-friendly landscaping.

Watch as the roof goes from drab to dramatic with succulents, edible plants (permaculture) and wildlife. We are creating an oasis of biodiversity to serve as a model to our community and our world. Read our mission statement in the “About Us” section. Visit us often. Leave us your comments and feedback. We look forward to the dialogue!
