The grass is greener in Orange

The Junglefy team recently created an innovative new green roof for the new Orange Regional Museum which included over 1200 rolls of turf.

The new museum is attracting widespread media attention, including Prime 7,  The Central Western Daily and ABC News and is set to become a feature of this bustling regional town.

Orange City Council have taken a progressive approach to the design and sustainability aspects of the new museum, and the new grass roof will not only be a beautiful place for people to enjoy, it also has numerous sustainability features, including serving as an insulator for the building.

In order to ensure the grass and soil don’t erode from the roof, we used a product called geo-webbing which supports the specially formulated soil which has been pumped onto the roof.

The turf is a a combination of Tall Fescue and Kentucky Blue Grass and is the same as that used on the roof of Parliament House in Canberra.

When the building is finished, members of the public will be able to walk on the turf-covered roof.
