What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Houzz Tour: Cabin Studios in the Landscape
The roof's role in both the landscape and architecture of the site and design is a unique aspect of this project. Because of the necessary terracing, the roof of the lower cabin (the yoga studio), is the initial site experience. The green roof is really the curb appeal of the property — the first facade of the design. Hook took this opportunity to treat the roof as a canvas, more so than a typical green roof, and designed it as a living piece of art, full of succulents and other plants found throughout the project.
Christine Tusher added this to How to Install a Green Roof
First steps: Once your contractor has installed and water tested the membrane, your roof is ready to be planted. There are two ways to do this: Use a modular system of planted living roof trays.Add soil and plant your roof as though it were a garden in the ground, as shown here.

With benefits like reducing run-off pollution, more natural insulation for your house, and a longer roof-life, switching to a green roof seems like a perfect way to increase your garden area and create an aesthetically pleasing space.
