Savings

Use green roofs to extend the roof life of your home by more than 50 years. The green roof cost calculates potential future savings compared to traditional roofs. Green roofs help savings with stormwater management, real estate value, environmental benefits, and energy savings.

Order and Installation

Build Sustainably

From permitting to installation, we’ll take care of everything. After you order, we’ll gather remote aerial images of your building, design your green roof, take care of any necessary permits, and schedule your installation. Once installed, we’ll schedule a plant care inspection to make sure your green roof is thriving.

50+ Yrs

Built to Last

Our green roofs add an extra layer of protection to your building. Allowing your roof structure to go 50+ years without being replaced or needing maintenance. Garden rooftops prevent extreme temperatures and ultraviolet radiation that ultimately erode and weaken your roof over time. 

75%

Water Storm Management

Our green roof designs are simple, beautiful, but also offer water management. The EPA has found that green rooftops can help reduce rainstorms runoffs by 75%. It works when the plants in our green roof system begin to naturally absorb rainwater through transpiration and release through evaporation. All the while the plants and growing substrate is retaining harmful pollutants that usually run into local waterways or treatment facilities.

Tax Credits

Cities are investing in their future by incentivizing tax credit programs and grants. Learn more about your local policy by getting involved with programs such as LEED and BREEAM that are incentivizing new developments and existing buildings to think about the positive impact green design has on our social, economic, and  environments.

87%

Air Purification

Green roofs is the new standard for policy makers and forward thinking cities to make a positive impact on the environment and the world. NASA  studies have found that plants can remove up to 87% air pollution and improve the quality of air we breathe through outdoor air vents. 

15 dBA  

Noise Pollution Reduction

Green roofs help with noise pollution. While developers are working hard on their projects green roofs can lower sound abatement by 15 decibels; depending on plant selection the difference in volume between a vacuum cleaner (75 dBA) and a lawn mower (90 dBA).

100%

Self-Sustaining

Our green roof system are designed to be self sustaining. Allowing your rooftop garden to flourish throughout the seasons. Depending on the height of the building we recommend annual check-ups to weed out any seeds that may have been carried by nature.

Frequently asked questions

What are the different types of green roof systems?


We design with extensive green roofs and intensive green roof systems. Extensive green roofs are the most cost-efficient and minimum maintenance. Intensive green roofs, however, allow our design team to become more creative and include plants such as shrubs, wildflowers, and even trees.




What are the benefits of a green roof?


Green roofs create beautiful landscapes to building tops, but they also reduce energy consumption. Our green roof systems are helping cities combat heat islands and during the winter months save on energy consumption allowing the building to conserve heat. Become more energy-efficient today and begin to lower energy costs all year round.




What plants grow in a green roof?


We design with a variety perennials, shrubs, blooming annuals, nectar and pollen-rich plants that grow throughout the season. The plants grown in our green roofs are creating pollinator gardens and restoring healthy habitats for birds, bees, and butterflies. We're caring for nature's caregivers.




How much does a green roof cost?


Depending on size, climate zone, design, installation, plant selection, and maintenance, green roofs can range from $25 - $30 per sqft. However, it is well documented by the EPA that green roofs can significantly cut costs on cooling and heating as well as extending the rooftop life to 50+ years.




How long do green roofs last?


Our green roofs add an extra layer of protection to your building. Green roofs allow your roof structure to go 50+ years without being replaced or needing maintenance. Garden rooftops prevent extreme temperatures and ultraviolet radiation that ultimately erode and weaken your roof over time.





Do green roofs help with stormwater management?


Our green roof designs are simple, beautiful, but also offer water management. The EPA has found that green rooftops can help reduce rainstorms runoffs by 75%. It works when the plants in our green roof system begin to absorb rainwater through transpiration and release through evaporation naturally. All the while, the plants, and the growing substrate are retaining harmful pollutants that usually run into local waterways or treatment facilities.
