“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.
Green roofs. Alpine plants are also perfectly suited to green roof applications, because of their drought tolerance and low stature. Sedum varieties (shown here) vary greatly in texture and color, creating a detailed carpet of plantings that will add interest to an otherwise static surface.

As part of the remodel, the worn out roof was replaced with a green roof, planted with moss and ferns gathered along the Columbia River Gorge. The green roof offers insulation as well as a playful visual counterpoint to the traditional white cottage. Photo by Lincoln Barbour.
