These spectacular rooftops feature lawns, gardens, and beyond. A living roof is a roof of a building that is at least partially or completely covered with vegetation and a growing medium, planted over a waterproofed membrane. More complex in creation than a standard roof, the living roof may include further layers, such as a root barrier, and often incorporates drainage and irrigation systems. This type of roof can serve multiple purposes for a building, including rainwater absorption, insulation, and habitat creation for wildlife.
