    Lynne I'm in Winterthur Switzerland at the moment and most of the new appartment buildings are extremely green the have geen roofs with gardens or at least vegetation.

    I'll see if I can take some pictures of roofs and post them on here. Very interesting indeed.

    A little bit off topic, the buildings are energy efficient and in a way that is much more advanced than the US or Asia. They even make you pay per bag of garbage ($1.80 Swiss Francs - $US1.94) which really makes you think about recycling as the recycled rubbish you don't have to pay for.

      Thank you for the response, Danny. I'm sure that, besides myself, there are many here that would love to see the pictures of the green roofs that you mention. It's wonderful that the Internet permits us to so freely share information about sustainability efforts in our different regions. I hope that we can inspire one another to more far-reaching changes that can have significant impact.

          Agreed I looked into it besides looking great they use it primarily for temperature regulation, what a cool idea. Also they follow the same basic principle on most green roofs with the structure as posted above by myself.

            In connection with your post the best thing about Green roofs it provide shade and remove heat from the air through evapotranspiration, reducing temperatures of the roof surface and the surrounding air.” Some green roofs are essentially rooftop gardens complete with benches, picnic tables and walkways.

                Green roofing is something that I'd surely want to try. I think I am going to start it out for my small gazebo at the back and see how it goes. I guess I would need a professional to do thi though. Are there any newbie how tos you can suggest for me?
