Summary
In this book, the authors issue a call to green up our neighborhoods. Garages, bicycle shelters, car ports, porches, barns, and home extensions are perfect locations for green roofs, and even a small green roof will soak up excess rainfall, provide insulation, attract wildlife, and maybe even improve an ugly view. The book contains forty-two case studies that provide first-hand testimony from planning thropugh maintenance. Among the key questions are: How much will it cost? ; Can I install it myself? ; Where can I plant it? ; Will it leak? ; What plants do I use? The answers are found in the book, and readers discover how installing a green roof can be a positive, life-enhancing act that benefits the environment
