How is the Roof Deck detailed? I have had several suggestions and so far it seems like a Single ply with a Cedar deck on Sleepers is the best most economical way..

The flowers are all from different varieties of flowering sedum plants. The plants were supplied by "LiveRoof" http://www.liveroof.com

I have a roof project that I'm doing where it currently has a rubber membrane roof, which has to be replaced due to age. I'd like to exactly replicate the layout of this, with the living roof on the perimeter...is there just a standard rubber membrane underneath this whole thing?

John Hill added this to 9 Cooling Rooftop Gardens
... shows that it is used as a roof deck in an urban context, Seattle, Wash. to be exact. The roof is small, but it's a patch of green that the owners can enjoy while reaping the benefits of the green roof.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Remember the Rooftop
Even with a slim budget, you can still take advantage of your rooftop. The real treat is being outside; a patio table and chairs are all you need to enjoy a nice meal under the stars.Learn more about green roofs

A great design if you're looking to incorporate a bit of urban gardening. Many roofs have the space for a decent sized gardening area if used properly.

Depending on the slope that you are working with, could you get away with a low deck-type structure instead of a wall and leveling ground for a patio? The groundcover around this one makes it feel lower.
