Green roofs or living roofs are partially or completely covered with vegetation and a growing meduium, planted over a waterproofing membrane. Green roofs absorb and filter rainwater, keeping streams and rivers clean. They insulate buildings and save energy. They also provide food and habitat for birds. They typically include a root barrier, a drainage layer, 3-4 inches of a soil mixture engineered for water absorption, and low-growing plants that can withstand droughts and heavy rain.
