Eco Tip # 1 Green Roofs and Cisterns

Green Roofs:
Green roofs have many sustainable properties. They provide superior insulation without using synthetic materials, they retain and filter storm water runoff , and the provide a micro-habitat for various native species of flora and fauna.
Many times we integrate cisterns into our projects to collect roof drainage or storm runoff, store the water and then use it for irrigation.
