Green Roof - Intensive

Also known as living roofs, green roofs are a continuous layer of vegetation that is installed on a flat or slightly sloped roof surface. They are made up of a layer of soil and plants laid over a drainage layer, waterproofing membrane and insulation. Intensive green roofs are usually 6-24 inches in depth and support the growth of larger plants, shrubs and even trees. The rooftop is also an ideal location for vegetable and herb gardens which may be less exposed to weeds and pests than at ground level. While intensive green roofs are more common on larger commercial buildings, don't let that stop you from going full bloom on your own home!
