New in the GreenSource series, this book gives all of the information needed to skillfully construct, design, and maintain green roofs—benefiting buildings and the environment.

A practical guide to this emerging trend in the sustainability movement, Green Roof Construction and Maintenance explains, step-by-step, how to place, select, and maintain plants and soil on the tops of buildings. These roofs will lower cooling and heating costs; reduce the amount of storm water that surges into sewer systems; and prolong roof life by as many as 25 years. The book includes illustrations, construction techniques for existing and new buildings, and color photographs of successfully installed green roofs. 224 pp.
