What is a Green Roof?

Also known as a living roof, a live roof or an eco roof, a green roof is an integrated, vegetated living system on top of a roof structure of a building designed to mimic ground gardens for all their benefits.

It is constructed of several physical layers, among them a waterproofing membrane. Other layers can include a protective root barrier, followed by a drainage board, a filter fabric, soil and various plantings via seeding, plant plugs or sedum mats.

The term green roof may also be used to indicate roofs that use some form of green technology, such as a cool roof, a roof with solar thermal collectors or photovoltaic panels.
