How much does it cost to put the green roof on top of the garage?
really green highy spike grass. I really like it
What type of grass is that to the left of your driveway. The really green high spiky grass? Really like it.
Costs can vary quite a bit. That is a modular green roof system from Greengrid Roofs I believe.

Garden shed with green roof. Sedum planting, kentucky harvested poplar, reclaimed windows, and home-made barn door hardware.
How much weight is the roof engineered to hold?
I'm no green roof expert, so take what I say with some skepticism. The goal is to keep your growing medium as light as possible. That's why I used lava rock for the
calculated additional weight for snow load. You'll have to research what kind of growing medium you'll need depending on what you intend to grow on the roof. Our mix was designed to grow sedum plants which like dry soils. As far as the footers/piers, I can't really comment too much on that b/c each part
slab!). And makes sense on the 3/4", I'd assumed that would be required with all the weight; seems like it's basically engineered like spanish tile roof? On the weight calculation - 2500 #s seems low to me? What is the growing medium? I've seen a lot of these designed with slate chunks and 4 inches

For this residence, designers Zero Energy Design incorporated a green roof in a raised section that allows people in the living room and adjacent
eye level. The hybrid system by LiveRoof uses trays with soil and plants placed side-by-side to give the impression of a seamless extensive green roof. Read more about this house.

Harmony with the setting. This green roof blends perfectly with the extended view and makes the cabin look less obtrusive in the landscape. A vegetated roof is less disruptive of local habitat than a typical roof.

I like the edge detail on this green roof
Sometimes a green roof design will specify a gravel border around the edge of the roof to keep plants away from the more extreme weather and wind conditions at the edges of the roof. However, this is not always necessary; it depends greatly on the type of green roof and the plants
