Vegetation introduced on roof tops has excellent insulation qualities naturally cooling the house in the summer and warming it in the winter. It improves air quality by increasing oxygen level, decreasing the amount of carbon dioxide and acting as a dust filter.
Rooftop gardens provide a natural UV and wear protection which increases the roofing membrane live span.
Considering limited city lots one can profit from additional green space to cultivate vegetables for consumption or grow flowers beautifying the property.
