A green roof is a layered ballasted roof that has a growing medium and plants on top of a waterproof membrane. A green roof can be installed in place of a traditional roof and provide numerous benefits both immediately and over time.
Green roofs are becoming increasingly popular as a way to reduce energy consumption, support biodiversity, and make good use of otherwise unused space. Green roofs, also known as "vegetated" or "living" roofs, first appeared in parts of the world where building materials were scarce, and turf was used as a roofing material. Green roofs now replace hard infrastructure with one that is not only more efficient but also more beautiful and functional.
