Green Roofs

A green roof is composed of succulent plants and soils that collect and absorb rain during storm events. They are efficient at reducing stormwater pollution, energy consumption, and improving overall air quality, among other environmental and social benefits. An important factor to consider before installing a green roof is the ability of the roof and building to support the added weight of the soil and vegetation.
