MSNBC Green Roof Chicago News

In this linked article from Caroline at greenroofs.org, it’s plain to see

the value of green roofing ideas, and good evidence for

their usefulness.  Some of the benefits listed are the decrease of pollution

and storm runoff, which are definite positives.  If you have ever

been caught in a sudden city deluge you will appreciate this! 

Green Walls and roofs

are becoming something real.

For a take on residential green roofs, this link was

supplied by Joanne, of a quirky woodland style

home with a totally green roof in Wales, UK.

    Thank you, Imogen, for this, especially the quirky woodland style found in Wales. I’d give my eye teeth to have a home like the one shown. Wow! Thanks again.

    I love this house. It is fit for a hobbit or perhaps an elf. It is absolutely wondeful, and I would love to live in it!

    It’s a neat little house, isn’t it! Though I’m thinking they’re going to want to expand a bit one day, especially as their kids become teenagers!

    I adore the woodland house. It is so The Hobbit! What an amazing environment. Somewhere I have a photo taken in Norway of stuff growing on the roof, but I don’t think it was intentionally grown there 🙂

    Just came across this one today…these folks won a competition for their business plan to put gardens on top of grocery stores. What a concept!! Freshly picked veggies, no trucking involved, just steps away. Here’s a link with a better description:
