Green roof membranes, also known as cool roof systems or garden roofs, are completely or partially covered with vegetation made possible by a growing medium over a waterproofing membrane. Green roofs may also include additional layers such as a root barrier and drainage, plus irrigation systems.
There are two types of green roofs: intensive roofs, which are thicker, and can support a wider variety of plants, but are heavier and require more maintenance, and extensive roofs, which are shallow, lighter and require minimal maintenance.
