The first nursery in North America to focus on green roof plants, Emory Knoll Farms has been the nation’s leading supplier of plants and plant expertise for extensive green roof systems since 2000. We have significant first-hand experience working with a variety of roofing systems, soil mixes, manufacturers & designers, and climates. Our business model is based on offering the highest level of service in the industry.
Through our network of trusted, experienced grower-partners; Emory Knoll Farms can deliver to most of North America, from within the 500 mile LEED requirement. We provide a single point of contact and can deliver plants for locally, regionally, and nationally-based customers. And of course, this means the same commitment to quality, service, and horticultural expertise that has made us the national leader for Green Roof Plants.
Our business model is based on offering the highest level of service in the industry. We understand the nature of the construction industry and work with our customers to deliver the plants you need, when you need them, not on an arbitrary schedule.
We have numerous R&D plots on site to test plants, and we work with several universities and industry experts, supporting various green roof research projects. We have tested over three hundred plant species and varieties and offer the best of these in our catalog. With hundreds of acres of planted green roofs, we have experience in what makes a green roof successful – and why.
Emory Knoll Farms is dedicated to sustainability both in our environment and business practices. We continue to expand the sustainable design features in our operations. For example, solar power pumps all the water used in the greenhouse and photovoltaic cells supply most of our electrical needs.
Our own proven Regional Green Roof Plant blends. Mixed flats provide a broad mix of plants that are proven in various green roofs conditions in your project area.

This variety of plants in one tray makes a meadow-style planting successful and beautiful. No other nursery has the level of experience to let them stand behind their product with the confidence that we can.
