Green Roof Benefits

  • Insulation and Energy Savings

    Green roofs are a natural way to insulate and reduce energy use by both cooling roofs and producing shade.

  • Stormwater Management

    According to a report by the GSA, green roofs can reduce the flow of roof stormwater by up to 65%.

  • Offset “Heat Island” Effect

    City buildings and roads absorb more heat than natural landscapes. Green roofs can help reduce this effect using a nature-based approach to cooling.

  • Habitat and Biodiversity

    Green roofs increase biodiversity by providing new and natural habitats for pollinators, helpful insects, and animals.

  • Lower Maintenance

    Green roofs have lower maintenance costs compared to a conventional roof and enjoy a lifespan of up to twice as long.

Green Wall Benefits

Exterior Green Walls
  • Increase Green Space
    • Using vertical planes provides more opportunity to increase green space.
  • Adaptability
    • Exterior green walls are very versatile and can be used in different ways: for example, an herb/salad garden.
  • Enhances Unattractive Areas
    • Provides natural beauty in less appealing spaces, such as trash enclosures and parking garages.

Interior Walls
  • Purifies Air
    • Help to keep interior air clean by removing pollutants and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).
  • Insulation
    • Like green roofs, green walls can provide sound insulation, thereby providing respite from occupational noise
  • Improves Physical & Mental Health
    • Naturally relaxing interior green walls improve health which, in turn, increases productivity in office settings.
  • Creates Natural Beauty
    • By bringing nature indoors and creating natural art, interior spaces feel more connected to the picturesque outdoors.
