There are many ecological benefits when creating a green roof. The benefits are usually increased with greater substrate depths – the benefits associated with installing shallower, extensive green roofs are on the whole far more modest than those offered by intensive ones due to the smaller range of vegetation that can be grown, the reduction of water retention and many other factors.

 

Its imortant for clients to understand that Green roofs can be low maintenance, not NO maintenance! Any installation should have a regular maintenance program put in place after completion, or its highly likely to fail and given the large investment, these costs must be considered to keep your roof looking at its best.
