Review

This book has excellent graphics and color photographs. It is an up-to-date how-to volume that shows that it is possible anywhere, with the proper planning, to install a rooftop garden. -- Washington Post, November 3, 2007

Format: Hardcover
This book is perfect for readers who already know that green roofs are good for our planet, but are looking for technical information on how to build one. Product and plant guidelines and the construction process are marvelously detailed. It's also generous with photos and diagrams. This particular green roof demonstrates that they can be more than just sedum in planters on a flat roof--green roofs can be a building amenity and enhance the viewshed for nearby buildings as well. The book is very well written. It should be noted that the author is a German landscape architect and Germany leads the world in green roof design. An excellent resource for developers, real estate executives, building owners, and designers.

As a landscape architecture student, I found that this book is a useful source in terms of learning more about green roof technology. The author represents in very well organized manner the entire process of the project and collaboration between designers, consultants, engineers and etc. Overall, this book is important for anyone who wants to find some historical information about the pioneers in this industry; plants used for the ASLA green roof, constructional processes and documents as well.
