Workers weed, prune, plant, and fertilize the first pitched green rooftop in Singapore at the green pavilion in The Botanical Gardens. The roof, built in 2002, provides researchers the opportunity to study which plants are most suitable for rooftop planting. Despite an extremely limited supply of land, Singapore has made significant efforts to protect and create green space for its people through public planning and government policies to promote the greening of Singapore. From 1986 to 2007 the population of Singapore increased from 2.7 to 4.6 million yet the amount of acreage in Singapore covered by greenery increased from 36 to 47 percent during this same period of time.
