Living Roof Page
The Living roof is an idea which has waited too long to become mainstream. In an
era of overheated, smog ridden cities the living roof, or green roof ,makes a lot of
sense.
By cooling and cleaning both air and water, and providing greenspace and
wildlife habitat, green roofs make the city an even better place to live.
Add to these benefits triple the roof life and the potential to super insulate the top
of a building and it's hard to imagine why a roof wouldn't be living.
