About Green Roofs
Green Roofs

A green roof is a roof that has been planted with vegetation - the extent
of which is ultimately determined by the green roof's purpose, the
building's weight-bearing capacity, and the client's budget and aesthetic
preference.  It has the potential to extend the life of a conventional roof
for up to 50-100 years, reduce energy costs, and add a new bright
dimension to otherwise ugly unused space.
