Living Roof Birdhouses, Feeders and More...

This spring my husband, Jeff, and I launched a new project, business, hobby...

We started selling living roof birdhouses and feeders at our local Farmers' Market.  All the roofs are made with drought-tolerant, winter hardy sedums and succulents.  They require very little care and green, living, roofs will return each year. We're actually making a profit-that's going towards our vacation later this summer!

  2. Hey Becks they look great, what a wonderful idea.

    I'm in the process of making some dovecotes and bee hives too but without the green roofs.

    I'll bet your talented guy could build some awesome hives...

  5. Congratulations on your new business! I love your idea so much I was actually looking at a bird feeder in front of my house to see if we could retrofit it. It certainly would look better with a living roof.

  7. Hi again! The cylindrical blue bird house pictured on my last post is a bird favorite. I don't think it was originally intended for blue birds but they move in every spring. This spring they were kicked out by a pair of chickadees. I had the birdhouse close to the fence to provide open space and some jerk dumped the nest, killing the eggs. I moved the house and it was empty for about a week before the blue birds moved back in. It's made out of a lightweight non-plastic material. It looks just like a river birch trunk.
