254 pgs. Fine hardcover in Fine jacket. Illustrated with color photos throughout. A description of the historical development and current techniques for planting on roofs and walls. Apart from inherent beauty, roof greening reaps the environmental benefits of reducing pollution and run-off, insulating against heat and cold and reducing maintenance needs. Both large scale and small domestic examples are explored, introducing the practical techniques required including weight-bearing considerations, materials, substrates, draining layers and modular systems. A chapter is devoted to choosing plants optimally for the extreme conditions encountered on roofs, such as drought, high light intensity and wind. Contents: Introduction, Why Build Green Roofs?, Components of Green Roofs, Facade Greening, Living Walls, Structures and Surfaces. Appendices: Roof-Greening Plant Directory, Facade-Greening Plant Directory, Suppliers, Bibliography, Index. ISBN 088192640X #1789
