How a unique niche business bloomed on rooftops.

Apex Green Roofs founder and owner Charles Sinkler has more than 20 years experience in design/build landscapes with a specific focus on low maintenance, non water dependent landscapes. In 2003 he began building vegetated roofs. Now with 14 years experience building varied vegetated roof assemblies - he's a leading expert in the design and construction of vegetated or green roof systems.

How did he get into the business? In his own words: "My father worked in the waste water treatment industry from whom I learned an appreciation of some of the problems and solutions in dealing with storm water management. Inspired by Germany's implementation of green roof applications as a storm water management strategy, combined with my extensive experience in low maintenance or non-water dependent landscaping construction, it was a natural progression for me to bring these skills and knowledge to roof tops."
