Green Living ECO Roofs Spain Tel: 676 863 778. A green roof or living roof is a roof of a building that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and a growing medium. It may be planted over a waterproofing membrane in wetter climates. It may also include additional layers such as a root barrier and drainage and irrigation systems. Container gardens on roofs, where plants are maintained in pots, are not generally considered to be true green roofs, although this is debated. Green roofs serve several purposes for a building, such as absorbing rainwater, providing insulation, creating a habitat for wildlife, increasing benevolence and decreasing stress of the people around the roof by providing a more aesthetically pleasing landscape, and helping to lower urban air temperatures and mitigate the heat island effect.
