Why Do I Want a Green Roof?
Apart from how attractive a green roof can look especially as the seasons change, there are other reasons why Green Roofs are becoming so popular:
- The Green Roof environmental benefits include benefits for wildlife, the carbon footprint, sustainability etc.
- Building performance enhancements.
- The financial incentives and financial benefits of green roofs can be substantial.
- Planning requirements. Some applications require a green roof.
For all the above reasons Green Roofs have become very popular in recent years. In urban environments it will attract the birds and butterflies back and provide cleaner air offsetting our carbon footprint and helping with combating Global Warming. If all of us helped by just giving our sheds a make over it would make a big difference.
