The Online Small Scale Green Roof Guide
by Dusty Gedge and John Little

This online guide is designed to meet the needs of DIY enthusiasts, builders and landscaper contractors who want to build green roofs. The small scale green roof guide builds on the material in our original downloadable pdf – The DIY Guide to Green & Living Roofs which we published in 2008. The information has been updated with new elements with more sketches and now multi-media input such as videos and is accessible in the members section online.
