Over 1200 rolls of turf were used by the Junglefy team recently to create an innovative green roof for the new Orange Regional Museum.
Taking a progressive approach to the design and sustainability aspects of the new museum, the Orange City Council approved the installation of the grass roof, which will not only be a beautiful place for people to walk on and enjoy but will also boast numerous sustainability features, including serving as an insulator for the building.
A combination of Tall Fescue and Kentucky Blue Grass, the turf has been installed using geo-webbing that supports the specially formulated soil pumped onto the roof and prevents the erosion of the grass and soil. The turf is the same as the one used on the roof of the Parliament House in Canberra.
