Living roof

Living green roofs have several advantages, including their beauty and providing climatic stabilisation. They can be planted with foods and herb gardens and ground covers or allowed to grow naturally. Green living roofs reduce energy costs with natural insulation, absorb storm water, potentially lessening the need for expensive drainage systems. Green roofs improve air quality and help reduce the urban heat island effect, a condition in which city developments absorb and trap heat. They provide peaceful retreats.
