this project is in california where there is no rain all summer it sure does lessen our use of arguably our most important and increasingly scarce resource..

Mariana Pickering (Emu Architects) added this to 6 Green-Roof Myths, Busted
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates the cost of a green roof at $10 to $25 per square foot. Obviously, this price is highly variable, depending on whether you want an inaccessible sedum roof or an accessible roof garden.The warranties on the building products used in a green roof are similar to those for all of the other building products in a home. They must be installed according to the manufacturer's specifications by a qualified professional.

The need for irrigation is cut down considerably with these features. In fact, many green roofs require no additional water once they are established. They become an integral part of nature's water cycle for that particular site. "If we begin to think about each site as self-regenerative and consider closed-loop cycles for our water, I assure you we would be further away from the increasing desertification of our landscapes," Boyter says. "Green roofs, living architectural systems, are a tool to increase the quality of our lives as well."
