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

Wow! This is definitely an "intensive" green roof. Very impressive!
The need for irrigation is cut down considerably with these features. In fact, many green roofs require no additional water once they
consider closed-loop cycles for our water, I assure you we would be further away from the increasing desertification of our landscapes," Boyter says. "Green roofs, living architectural systems, are a tool to increase the quality of our lives as well."
The roof then becomes part of a healthy and balanced microecosystem, supporting biodiversity."Long-term irrigation of a green roof is no more costly than any other planting area," he says. To offset the costs, the irrigation water can be harvested as rainwater, as is the case for the green roof in this

greenhouse with a gravel floor. The frame is painted steel with aluminum sliding glass door. The front features a green roof with native grasses and the rear is covered with a glass roof.
great idea for a "green house"
fan pumps hot air out of the house. Deciduous trees shade the glass skylight in summer, allowing light to enter but reflecting excess solar heat. A green roof planted with native grasses mitigates solar heating in the living portion. Sliding glass doors open on both sides of the house, creating a comfortable

green roof and rain water collection
Green roof = Deer proof garden, insulation, longer lasting roof and recycling of rain water. It is just overwhelmingly an opportunity to make something
A properly designed green roof will also have a root barrier to stop plants from trying to root too deep. This homeowner elected to have his vegetable garden on the roof (perhaps to keep it safe from hungry animals).
There is no evidence to suggest that green roofs are more
