Exterior Photos From HGTV Green Home 2010

Large native canopy trees – including Pitch Pine, Pin Oaks and Sugar Maples — were transplanted from other development sites within The Pinehills to the HGTV Green Home property to lend the yard a sense of permanence.

The third-floor observation tower is equipped with nine solar panels that are set on a grid-tie system which feeds excess power back to the power grid. Energy Star-rated shingles by CertainTeed were chosen to cover roof surfaces where coated copper was not required.

A covered porch with MDF deck provides a spot to relax and enjoy the common green area. Landscaped beds feature drought-tolerant and native plants and shrubbery, supported by a drip-irrigation system.

Walkways, lined with permeable pavers, allow rain water to seep back into the ground and feed Plymouth’s aquifer rather than running to the storm-water system.
