Hawthorne’s First Eco Roof

One of the first eco roofs built in Portland is over our front porch.  It was installed way back in 2001 by Ecoroofs Everywhere and consists of native flowers, grasses and sedums.   It helps to soak up some of the rain we get around here by creating a permeable space  where there was once a shingled roof.  Stay in our private Bagby room and you’ll get your very own personal veranda right in the middle of our 700 sq ft eco roof.  Yes, we encourage you to stay and smell the flowers!
