Green Roofs


[via Eco Geek]. Don’t they remind you of The Shire? You would expect a Hobbit to rush out any moment. Green (literally) roofs are getting increasingly common even in the United States. Apart from keeping the home interiors cooler, these roofs reduce significant stormwater runoff, protects the roof membrane from harsh weather, and are an excellent source of oxygen (no need to get expensive carbon offsets).
