Compost plays key role in green roof mixes

Compost plays key role in green roof mixes

BioCycle 46(3): 29-32, 34

Green roofs are new option for storm water best management practices which offer the potential to convert thousands of square feet of idle space on rooftops to retention areas. These green roofs provide peak flow reduction of rooftop runoff and roof surface temperatures as well as provide hydrologic control of small, frequently-occurring storms and their effects on ecosystems downstream.
