A green roof is partially or completely covered with vegetation, such as sedum, planted in a growing medium over a waterproof membrane. Green roofs are can help insulate your house, reduce water runoff, filter pollutants, and cool the air. The typical green roof isn’t meant to be walked on. A roof garden, whether or not it has flowerbeds, is meant to be visited and enjoy.
