How do I install a green roof?

It is possible to install a green roof yourself. Before you do this, you will want to know how it works. You start by cleaning the roof to prevent leakage. Then you apply the root-resistant membrane to the roof, which provides extra protection. Then you apply the protective membrane. The protective sheet is included in the green roof package. This protects your roof, and you can be sure that the roof remains waterproof. After this you lay the drainage layer on top of the protection membrane. This layer ensures that the water does not stay between the plants and the green roof does not get too wet.
