An “extensive” green roof, on the other hand, is a thinner, lighter, version that looks more similar to a standard roof. It can be sloped or flat. Often it will be planted with sedum (stonecrop). Many "semi-intensive" green roofs are home to an array of plant species, including native grasses and flowers

What type of plantings did you go for on the green roof?
Gosh that would take an essay-length answer! The materials are durable--metal roof, stained cedar siding, aluminum clad windows, ipe, etc.--but the short answer to 'how do you build well?' is--very carefully, and with a good builder. Deep

I am looking for ideas for a non-penetrating guardrail for a flat roof patio. I have recycled rubber pavers. Is your guardrail bolted down (penetrating)? So far I have seen only worker safety ones that wouldn't work for children.

"Green roof" - they have pebbles all along the edges to keep the soil down and out of the gutters.
Here we can see more of its appeal. The roof itself is pretty, but it also is located to be seen by the upper floors in the adjacent house, which has its own planters and a smaller patch of green roof.
Looking outside the same home, we see a green roof blanketed with wildflowers. Not only does

How much does it cost to put the green roof on top of the garage?

What type of grass is that to the left of your driveway. The really green high spiky grass? Really like it.
Costs can vary quite a bit. That is a modular green roof system from Greengrid Roofs I believe.
