Green roof design has become a natural solution for many public buildings thanks to great ecological and energy efficiency. And the development of habitats for birds and other forms of urban life. Standard “extended” green roofs as they are now defined: the vegetation grows in a flat layer of light soil, which is contained in a special mounting system on a waterproof membrane.
A smaller roof can achieve some of the same environmental goals, but a full financial return on investment is unlikely, at least in the near future. These projects are more aimed at doing good to the environment, beauty, and horticultural interest. With reduced financial expectations, there is more design freedom, and an increasing number of green roofs in residential areas offer plant surprises, innovations, and a pleasant feeling of experimentation and pleasure.
To explore the possibilities of green roof design ideas, Snodgrass suggests starting with a niche or a birdhouse. A green roof or a lawn roof or residential roof is a growing trend. Architects and designers have skilfully understood how to take root in the most expected places – above the head!
Most roofs are awful or just plain boring. A living green roof solves all of these problems by making it look stunning, and adding an environmentally friendly element. Here are some of the best ideas for green roofs and why you want to have one at home.
A landscape or lawn roof has many advantages if you plan it properly. Depending on where you live and the water requirements in your region, choose plants that can withstand a lot of rain. The key to choosing is to find plants that don’t have aggressive roots that can damage your roof. The choice of plants for green roofs naturally depends on local conditions. Roof plants should be harder than those growing in the ground. It can be hot, dry and windy, and weed seeds carried by wind and birds can still penetrate.
