More and more American city planners, architects and homeowners are incorporating the benefits of green roof design in urban revitalization, new home and public building construction.

In addition to the benefit of healthier communities and workplaces, using plants as roofing materials:

• Reduce strain on storm water systems
• Provide biodiversity
• Support cost-efficient infrastructure and infill development
