About Roof Top Sedums:
The seedlings for Roof Top Sedums were planted in 2006, when co-owner Teresa Nelson collaborated on a green roof project with LiveRoof LLC in Michigan. This collaboration led to the opportunity to be a grower and promoter of the LiveRoof® Hybrid Green Roof System in the Midwest, and thus, Roof Top Sedums went from concept to reality in 2007.
Teresa and her sister, Roxanne Nagel, decided to fill a void in the growing green roof industry, and Roof Top Sedums LLC, a 100% women-owned business, began providing custom grown green roof vegetation for LiveRoof® modules and custom grown green roof plugs from their family farm in Davenport, Iowa.
Teresa and Roxanne’s initial hope for the first season was to begin marketing the company and start their stock bed establishment. Within a month of startup, they were receiving requests for quotes on projects.
Since 2007, Roof Top Sedums has competed over 60 LiveRoof® projects in Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska, and they just keep growing!
