Description
Excerpt: Green roofs are highly engineered, lightweight roofing systems that allows for the propagation of rooftop vegetation while protecting the integrity of the underlying roof. While conventional roof gardens rely on heavy pots and planters, green roof systems allow for much more extensive cultivation of plant life across wide expanses of a given rooftop. Municipalities worldwide have used green roofs as an innovative solution to urban environmental problems such as pollution from stormwater runoff, high summer temperatures and air pollution.
