Work begins on Barclays Center's rooftop garden

Work has begun to make the Barclays Center rooftop go green.



Crews began installing easy-to-maintain plants called sedum on the arena's roof.



Forest City Ratner Companies, which owns Barclays Center, says the project will bring much-needed benefits to the community.



The plants will cover 135,000 square feet of the arena's rooftop.



The project is expected to be completed by the fall.
