How To Use Green Roofs To Create Environmentally Friendly Spaces

With the constant progression of urban growth and increased levels of density in cities across the world have created, and continue to create, “urban jungles”. Such a concentration of structures and people can often lead to a sense of oppression, stark, noisy, unnatural blocks of concrete and glass.

Wide-Ranging Benefits

In addition to the obvious economic advantages an attractive, natural-looking, differentiated property with lots of green space will have in the local environment, which can bring higher rental yields and real estate values, the running costs of those buildings can be reduced to such a degree that green roofs pay for themselves and bring about a “green dividend” to the owners.

Green roofs and living walls are a great way of providing an attractive, useful, environmentally friendly open space on otherwise ‘lost’ flat roofs and podium decks.  They offer considerable benefits, some not always considered by developers.
