How do you start a project like this? - I love the idea of having a garden on your roof. However, I have no idea how I would begin to go about turning my roof into a garden. This is such a great idea and a great way to avoid having to see the sometimes ugly roof shingles. Thanks for the great picture and idea.

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
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Living Roofs Crown Green Design
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.

I love the living roof. It reminds me of the California Academy of Sciences. This is almost my ideal home, the only thing that could make it better in my mind would be a more accessible view of the street (porch?) and a front yard suitable for children to play.
