Amazing--a living roof on garden shed!
to show the more interesting, weathered side of the wood. The small roof is covered with a low-maintenance, lush garden from Live Roof. The live roof adds texture to the roof, absorbs heat and helps mitigate water runoff.
Shed roofs get their names from the structures they originally housed: sheds
The advantage of modular roof trays like the ones used on this shed roof is that they come preplanted, so you don’t have to worry about whether your plantings will take. They can also offer easier access to the waterproofing below and increased water retention.The

Is it possible to estimate rough costs for a reno of this kind?
We have an identical project in mind for our 60's ranch and have estimated costs to run between $250 - 450K based on material selection and extent of labor (tear-downs, replacements, unexpected hiccups, etc.)
Can you please provide as much detail as possible about the roof edge trimming? What was used? Sizes? Thanks.
The roof edges are cedar with a bronze metal drip edge.
Could easily be double your estimated costs based on our experience.

3. Roofing. Here's a good example of a project where even if you feel you have the skills to perform the task safely and properly, you may not be able to complete the project in a short enough period of time to avoid exposing your home to damage from rain. If you can't get your roofing project done
done in a couple days, don't start it. Even professionals can underestimate the time a project will take to complete, so you may want to double your estimate.
Recycled-Content Shingle RoofPros: A growing number of shingles on the market today have recycled content, from those that mimic the look of cedar shakes (like these from EcoStar) to recycled slate-look shingles (like these available at Green Depot). These options provide an appealing lower-cost alternative

This is called a Green Roofing System, it actually makes roofs last 20 years LONGER than normal. It is very popular in Europe and places like Germany for the roofs of Skyscrapers. If you search Green Roofing Systems you will see the make-up of the roof and companies
Guess I shouldn't have removed all of the moss from my roof!
Beh, A green roof would be amazing in a tropical setting! You would need to have a roof with a steep enough pitch to drain the water quickly and a deep, but light
can support it. A deep green roof covered in vegetation would provide fantastic insulation. You would need an engineer to run the numbers to see if your home can support a green roof. It would also be helpful to contact local contractors who might specialize in green roofs, or see if you can find any
