A green roof or a living roof is a roof of a building that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and growing medium, planted over a waterproofing membrane. It may also include additional layers such as a root barrier and drainage and irrigation systems. Planting on roofs began in Europe but is now gaining popularity all over the world as more and more people are becoming aware of its eco-friendly qualities. Conventional roof gardens either restrict the planting to pots and planters or ordinary soil is spread onto roof surfaces, which always requires specially reinforced terrace or roof.
