In this article, we’re taking a closer look at green roofs for garden buildings.

What are green roofs? A green roof is a roof of a building that is partly or completely covered with vegetation, this is planted over a waterproofing membrane. Green roofs can serve many purposes for a building, such as absorbing rainwater, being a good use of insulation and creating a habitat for wildlife. A green roof also has a more aesthetically pleasing landscape than a regular roof would have. Green roofs are suitable for retrofit or redevelopment projects as well as new buildings and can be installed on small garages or larger industrial, commercial and municipal buildings.
