Vegetated Roof Top Gardens

[Northern California L&L]

Far too often the aesthetic appeal of a vegetated roofing system overshadows the real purpose of a roof. Before any decision or investment is made in vegetation it is prudent to make absolutely sure that you have a high quality, high performance ROOF in place.

This AIA CES registered presentation will provide insightful information on the history, design and implementation of a vegetated roofing system. The audience will discuss and learn to separate the “landscaping” process from the waterproofing. Information from other disciplines such as storm-water management and landscape architecture advancements will provide insight in to making a vegetated roof installation successful.
