About this title


Thinking about installing a green roof on your home but don't know where to start?

Creating My Green Roof is for homeowners who are considering a green roof but need more information about the costs, process, and next steps before moving forward.

The book is unique because it is based on survey results that explored the real world green roof questions and priorities of dozens of homeowners.

From costs, to design, to working with contractors, to selecting plants and maintenance, this short read contains everything you need to get started on the green roof that’s best for your structure, including:

  • How to decide which type of green roof is right for your home
  • How to calculate the approximate costs of your green roof, and how long it will take to break even against your lower heating and cooling costs
  • Which parts of green roof construction you can save money on by doing yourself
  • How to find, hire, and get the most from contractors and green roof service providers
  • How to select the right plants for your green roof
  • Which areas you absolutely must get outside help with to prevent costly and dangerous mistakes
  • A time-saving ‘cheatsheet’ on maintenance and irrigation requirements by green roof type
  • The time of year to begin installing your green roof for best results
  • One little mistake that could cost you thousands by preventing you from getting a rebate or tax break you’re entitled to
  • And much more
