Brent Elementary School

The ‘Urban Canyon’ at Brent Elementary showcases several greening techniques: native plantings along the perimeter, green roofs on two storage sheds, and 5 living walls that are constructed from recycled wooden pallets.  The canyon also features a green roof demonstration model to show the impact a green roof has on reducing rainwater runoff.  The combination of the planted and constructed green elements in the ‘Urban Canyon’ will retain on-site approximately 7,650 gallons or rain water each year.  The canyon was constructed in phases over 2011 and 2012 with the help and assistance of Brent staff, parents, student, community members, FedEx, and NFWF.  Sustainable Life Designs is the project designer.
