How to Turn Your Roof into a Green Roof
This video shows you how to add a planting bed to your roof, featuring a shed of the New England Wild Flower Society. You’ll need to have a strong moisture barrier, use lightweight materials for your soil, and have the right plants.
On this green roof they planted Northeastern plants on the sunny side, and Southeastern plants on the shady side. These are all plants that are used to dry and exposed conditions. The plants were watered once when they were planted, and haven’t been watered since. Looks doable, donít you think?
