Green roofs are rooftop landscapes where a waterproofing membrane, soil, and vegetation lays over a traditional roof. Well-designed, engineered and maintained green roofs provide multiple environmental, social, economic and aesthetic benefits. They are designed to absorb and recycle rainwater, provide insulation, creating a habitat for wildlife, and providing a more aesthetically pleasing landscape.
Urban air temperatures can be lowered with green roof systems and they effectively utilize the natural functions of plants to filter water and treat air in urban and suburban landscapes. Green roof technology is growing and having a positive effect on our environment. Contact RR Irrigation today for more information.
