Inside Out Design Native Paradise

Here at Inside Out Design, it is important for our clients to be able to see products prior to installation.  As we’ve grown we have added different display areas available with varying products for clients to view. 76 solar panels provide 100% of office energy used most years and our office is loaded with many other sustainable features. Since the office was originally constructed our hardscape has evolved to better suit our needs and provide a welcoming entrance for our clients. The landscape has transformed into a native plant paradise featuring rain gardens, reforested areas and prairies. Inside Out Design, LLC also became a certified Monarch Waystation which includes acres of naturally occurring milkweed, Joe Pye weed, goldenrod and loads of other pollinator plantings. We also work year-round battling invasive species on the property in order to improve biodiversity.

A favorite office feature of ours is the green roof.  Also known as a vegetative roof, eco roof, living roof. Call it what you want. When dreaming up offices for the new Inside Out Design, LLC offices, a green roof was inspired by an introduction to the green roof at Bernheim in Louisville. Being in the green industry and being committed to sustainability, we knew the green roof was the only way to go and had to be part of the new office plan. Vegetative roofs are environmentally beneficial in many ways, such as providing additional insulation, reducing water runoff, creating wildlife habitat, and reducing the heat island effect. Even though the roof area is  small, diversity was the goal. There are several different species of delosperma, sedum, dianthus, and allium. Most are standard green roof species, though some are known to work better for the green roof application, such as the sedum and allium. Some others were more experimentation for the roof. The design included masses of plants together, but also sprinkled throughout the entire roof again and again to create a cohesive, yet diverse design.
