Garden roofs will need extra structural support, as well. Be sure to check with someone knowledgeable to make sure your structure can support the weight. Good luck

Depending on what stage of construction you find yourself my suggestion to you is to speak with a qualified Roofing Contractor. They will be able to give you a clear outline of the costs in building a roof system of this caliber. 'Alwaysdesigning' is right about the structural support, a "Green Roof" is quite heavy. It would be wise to discuss your project with an Architect and they will be able to let you know if your existing structure is strong enough to support the roof. Or they will be able to tell you how to build it to meet structural building codes.

This last example is a completely inaccessible green roof, composed almost like a Japanese rock garden. It is an aesthetic element, something to be looked at from the second floor. Next: Garden Inspiration From New York's New High Line High Design With Solar Panels 3 Fuss-Free Ways to Garden

Drought-tolerant succulents. Succulents are well suited for vegetating an extensive (shallow soil) living roof. High water-use, low water-demand plants, most succulents can take the punishing heat, blistering sun and shallow soils of the rooftop environment — often with no permanent irrigation and nearly no maintenance. Note the pattern of the plantings and the band of pebbles around the perimeter of this roof. The pebbles enhance the composition and trap any soil kicked up by driving rain, keeping the soil on the roof where it belongs.
The bottom line: There is no one-size-fits-all solution, but I was pleasantly surprised at the resource-saving choices on the market today. From recycled products to simply choosing a lighter color in a traditional roofing material, there is a green option to fit just about every budget.
