Green Roofs Design and Installation
An Introduction to Green Roofs from Four Experts
How easy are green roofs to install and maintain" While they benefit wildlife and the environment, what else should you consider before planting one"

Sarah Alcroft, Houzz Contributor
For many of us, there?s little nicer than gazing across an expanse of greenery, whether that?s a country meadow or an emerald patch in the city, so any extra square of planting is welcome. Green roofs are a great way not only to add greenery, but to encourage wildlife, protect your property and bring a little joy to all who can see them. And if you think they only belong on eco new-builds, think again. They can be added to many styles of roof, sloping or flat, from an extensive extension to a garden shed. If you?re tempted by the thought of greening up your space but aren?t sure where to begin, read on for expert answers to the most common questions.
