Now you've taken off the extra layer of protection from the sun and the elements.

definitely one way of looking at it.

that same layer slowed the removal of the element water, which wants to get to the center of the earth. I want to expedited its journey by moving it off the roof most quickly.

You speak in jest, but being famously literal and humorless, I believe you make a good point, one I do support. But, support is key here. The structure was not made to support the weight of a turf roof. Unfortunately. I love the look and the idea but a real turf roof would crush the structure underneath after letting it soak into rottenness.

There's a real green roof at the Blueberry Park nearby, just the roof over the picnic shelter. It's quite solid, post and beam construction with no need for walls. They've even applied a rubber base layer and "walls" along the roof to contain the water from the drip irrigation also installed. There are mostly tiny sedums and other succulents. I do see some grassy volunteers planted by the birds.

I find them attractive and I appreciate your encouragement and creativity.

Well, are the supports made of African or European timber?
