Great roof! Would you have
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
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.
First steps: Once your contractor has installed and water tested the membrane, your roof is ready to be planted
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.

used EPDM which is basically rubber. There are newer types materials you could use as well. Any roofer could easily install a roof membrane for you.
How did you prevent the roof from rotting underneath?
Green roof garden shed-just like in my dreams.
like green roof for additional crops - what edible crop could grow up here in NM?
Add a green roofMake your shed more environmentally friendly by installing a green roof planted with shallow rooting plants such as small succulents and groundcovers. They will help clean and slow stormwater runoff as it hits the roof, while also insulating the space below. You’ll need to insert a rubber
rubber roof membrane below the green roof for waterproofing purposes.

What are the barriers between the soil on the roof and the sheathing? (And the doors are hung upside down, with one of the braces replaced. If it was necessary to hang them upside down, then the braces need to be reversed, which should be easy if they need to be replaced,)
Another cool idea for the garden shed...live roof
to show the more interesting, weathered side of the wood. The small roof is covered with a low-maintenance, lush garden from Live Roof. The live roof adds texture to the roof, absorbs heat and helps mitigate water runoff.
Shed roofs get their names from the structures they originally housed: sheds
The advantage of modular roof trays like the ones used on this shed roof is that they come preplanted, so you don’t have to worry about whether your plantings will take. They can also offer easier access to the waterproofing below and increased water retention.The

Many people shovel their roofs. This garden is an awesome idea but how can roofs cope with the weight?
I agree! Just curious if these roofs could handle northern country winters Any suggestions?
Garden roof? On an overhang on like a sunroom?
I would like to see a roof like this in real time
Roof top vegie patch is amazing
Love the succulent garden (just not on the roof!)
A close-up shows that the terracing allows for access to the roofs. Sedum roofs don't need gardening help like this, but it's important to consider that green roofs slow rainwater runoff while also insulating interior spaces and adding beauty to the "fifth facade";

Kinda great location but unsure if the green roof will work.
garden on roof -- nestled in trees
like approach and barrel green roof
An outbuilding can hide in plain sight. Because this small wonder is set down from the ridge and covered with a green roof, you won't know it's here if you're not looking for it.

Garden shed with green roof. Sedum planting, kentucky harvested poplar, reclaimed windows, and home-made barn door hardware.
How much weight is the roof engineered to hold?
I'm no green roof expert, so take what I say with some skepticism. The goal is to keep your growing medium as light as possible. That's why I used lava rock for the
calculated additional weight for snow load. You'll have to research what kind of growing medium you'll need depending on what you intend to grow on the roof. Our mix was designed to grow sedum plants which like dry soils. As far as the footers/piers, I can't really comment too much on that b/c each part
slab!). And makes sense on the 3/4", I'd assumed that would be required with all the weight; seems like it's basically engineered like spanish tile roof? On the weight calculation - 2500 #s seems low to me? What is the growing medium? I've seen a lot of these designed with slate chunks and 4 inches
