The garage has visual access from the kitchen and upstairs bedroom, and a greenroof sounded like an aesthetically pleasing way to reduce water runoff. The garage will be turned into a studio off the garden so it was a good fit.
Basic materials include a membrane on top of plywood with 4 inches of engineered soil. Sedums are primarily used along with some potted plants.
