Green roofs, also called living or planted roofs, are systems of living plants and vegetation installed on the roof of an existing or new structure. Optionally, green roof has its own semi automatic sprinkler irrigation system to ensure optimum watering and evaporative cooling of the surroundings. The green roof system also saves large amounts of energy by providing insulation and radiant cooling to the floor below.
