The book contains forty-two case studies that provide first-hand testimony from planning thropugh maintenance. Among the key questions are: How much will it cost? ; Can I install it myself? ; Where can I plant it? ; Will it leak? ; What plants do I use? The answers are found in the book, and readers discover how installing a green roof can be a positive, life-enhancing act that benefits the environment.
