Abstract/Contents:Profiles Jennifer Appel, landscape architect, who works with landscape contractors in the city of Houston, Texas. Discusses Appel's work designing green roofs. Explains that green roofs can be beneficial because "plants can utilize some of the rainwater on rooftops before it enters the waste-water process." Suggests that "demand for green roofs will be increasing dramatically as regulations regarding stormwater require more and more installations...That presents a real opportunity for landscape contractors who put in the time to research techniques and materials."
