Green roofs deliver many benefits – mainly to urban areas. They insulate and protect roofing facias and materials; clean the air and counteract climate change; provide microclimates for insects and bird life and create fabulous new spaces for work and leisure. Green roofing has existed in Scandinavia and other parts of the world for centuries, but an increasing desire to make a positive contribution to our environment and the development of modern multi-layered systems means we are witnessing a growing trend for their construction in the UK. A variety of imaginative and inspirational green roofs already exist across the country which vary from simple Sedum layers on single story extensions to areas of green lawn disguising the roof of an underground car park, wild flower gardens on the roofs of inner city estates and ‘corporate’ oases in Canary Wharf.
