How To Build A Living Green Roof Project

Instructables website shares how to build a living  green roof

This step by step process is actually a lot easier than I ever would have expected and is a wonderful addition to any building.

A green roof or living roof is a roof of a building that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and a growing medium, planted over a waterproofing membrane. It may also include additional layers such as a root barrier and drainage and irrigation systems as quoted by Wikipedia


• Reductions in energy costs, living green roofs help lower the temperature of the building during warm months

• Improved air quality because living green roofs gather ,absorb and process pollutants

• Contributing to biodiversity by providing wildlife habitat for insects and birds

• Increase green space in urban environments
