Environmentally friendly buildings are a must for our future. Among the many new ideas for buildings are green roofs. But what is a green roof? How do they work? Why are individuals and businesses installing them? How do you install and maintain a green roof?

Green Roofs is not a self-help manual, as most green roofs will need the involvement of a string of professionals, but it is a guide to the process of designing and installing a green roof.

  • Introduces the range of green roofs available, from the small garden shed to towering skyscrapers
  • Discusses the role of the green roof as part of an overall greening of a building and landscape
  • Advises on types of vegetation to be grown and maintenance required, and warns of problems that can be encountered
  • Analyses the green roof movement, reports on its success thus far and looks to the future
  • Describes residential and business case studies from across the world
