Pinnacle Green Roof


The Pinnacle Green Roof is one of a few LEED-Certified green roofs in Nashville. A building is deemed LEED-certified by implementing green building practices that address carbon, energy, water usage, and waste.

Accessible on the sixth floor of the building, the Pinnacle Amenity Deck is used as an outside lunch spot for many of its tenants. There are 20,000 square feet of sedum mat on this green roof, which makes it the second-largest sedum mat in downtown Nashville. Sedum is a common rooftop plant material due to its drought tolerance and ease of maintenance. This sedum mat consists of different types of sedums that thrive in different seasons so there is always a flush of color.

Along with the sedum mat, there are 5,000 square feet of planter space that consists of redbud trees, hollies, ornamental grasses, and several different types of perennials. Our favorite time of the year for the green roof is around the time the spring color is installed. There are bursts of color coming from the white in the hydrangea blooms, yellow in the daylilies, blue in the catmint, and pink and white blooms from the redbuds.

The green roof project began at the beginning of 2018 and we’ve been maintaining the landscape for this project ever since.
