Interest in green roofs can be found across many disciplines, stemming from economic, aesthetic, and environmental reasons.
Green roofs offer significant advantages in the built environment, and they continue to be a sought-after element of both new and renovated construction projects. Designers are being called upon more frequently to develop plant palettes for green roof projects; green roof installation is more commonly now a part of the bidding process for builders.
At Emory Knoll Farms, we frequently work side-by-side with architects, engineers, builders, landscape architects, and designers on green roof projects. However, we also believe that a solid and shared foundation of knowledge about green roofs has advantages to all involved in this industry, and more importantly, to our environment.
We have collected in the following pages information that we hope you will find useful on all your green roof projects. We hope that you will continue to reference these pages in the future, and as they are updated.
