Small Green Roofs $24.95
Garages, bicycle shelters, car ports, porches, barns, and home extensions are perfect locations for green roofs. They've been seen on industrial buildings for some time, but in these more personal settings, their benefits are easily enjoyed: even a small green roof will soak up excess rainfall, provide insulation, attract wildlife, and maybe even improve an ugly view. What's more, installing a green roof is a positive, life-enhancing act that benefits the environment as well.
In this inspiring compendium, four green roof pioneers — and the adventurous homeowners whose stories they gather — issue a rousing call to green up our neighborhoods starting right at home.
The first book to focus on small-scale and domestic green roofs, Small Green Roofs contains more than forty profiles of small and domestic-scale projects of all shapes and sizes. For each project, details are given for design, construction, and installation, as well as how-to tips on how the roof was planted and cared for.
