This is a nice idea (not new), but really not practical for most people. Very few rooves are strong enough to take the extra weight of soil, especially when wet. And it would be tricky to water in dry periods - for us in Western Australia, that's 6-7 months during summer.

Apart from the fashion victims who insist on black tiles, a lot of rooves in Oz are made of Zincalume, which reflects the sunlight. Insulation is more practical.
