What is a Green Roof?

Roofs that are either partially or completely covered with plants are considered green roofs. While green roof technology is somewhat new in NZ, European countries, in particular Germany, have been designing green roofs for decades. Each particular green roof varies, however, every green roof contains the following basic components: waterproofing membrane, root barrier, drainage and water retention layer, growing medium (substrate) and plants.
