Why are green roofs great for cities?

1) Green roofs are great for insulation

They keep your house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. In the summer, it’s like living underneath a cave. Plants and greenery help absorb the sun’s rays. In the winter, the green roof provides insulation and breaks up the cool air.

2) Green roofs prevent floods

Green roofs hold on to water. Preventing it from reaching the city below all at once.

3) You can make money off your green roof

Not only will you save on your air conditioning, but you can even start charging a premium for your green roof! A pub in Minneapolis allows patrons to partake in lawn bowling on top of their bar.
