Green roofs are awesome. Not only do they add a bit of green to the over-paved urban landscape, but they help combat the heat island effect from all of the surrounding asphalt. A green roof can also help you save on your energy bills by adding some extra insulation to the top of your home.
In this video from Greensulate, you can watch a time-lapse installation of a green roof.
I love the chance to see the installation process! If you want to see even more green roofs, check out our green roof slideshow!
