I've always been interesting in "green" roofing! I'm wondering how you would repair it if it got a leak or something. Would you have to rip up the plants to fix it? http://www.roofingcontractorpittsburgh.com/roofing

John Hill added this to 9 Cooling Rooftop Gardens
... reveals the color and variety in the plantings. This installation really melds with the surrounding landscape as well as the architecture, the latter well considered in terms of structure. The architecture itself appears natural in some regard, like an old house that seems like it was meant to be there. See more of this house.

California natives. A mix of California poppies (Eschscholzia californica), yarrow (Achillea mellifolium) and other natives makes this intensive green roof right at home in this California garden.
Add-On Number 2: Green Roof Pros: Adding insulation, cooling your home, cleaning the air and reducing the amount of storm-water runoff are just a few of the benefits of adding a green roof to your home. Planting green roofs in urban areas can also help mitigate the heat-island effect and add natural beauty to what is usually a neglected space.Cons: Aside from the initial installation (which can be pricey depending on the size of your roof and the type of garden), a green roof may also require some structural reinforcement to support the weight of the plants and soil. Upkeep also can be an issue — even automatic irrigation systems and native plant gardens need maintenance from time to time, and other roof repairs can be more difficult when workers need to access areas beneath the green layers.See more cooling rooftop gardens
Christine Tusher added this to How to Install a Green Roof
Who to hire: You’ll likely need to start with a structural engineer to be sure your roof can handle the extra weight, which can be up to 40 pounds per square foot after it rains. You’ll also want to hire a reputable general contractor to prep your roof with a waterproof membrane and any insulation required by your municipality. You should also have your contractor add decorative edging to make sure your plants don’t slide off the roof. But as for the actual garden installation, Coulson believes it can be a relatively easy DIY project.
