The Benefits of Garden Roofs will Astound You
- Improve your quality of life – With garden roofs, Lake Oswego residents can enjoy a major quality of life increase. This is magnified for those living in apartment complexes. Garden roofs provide a place to meet, congregate, and enjoy nature when access is limited or unavailable. Studies have shown bees, birds, and other insects will frequently stop in these areas, sometimes even integrating them into migrational patterns.
- Energy and pollution reduction – It’s easy to think that a garden roof would cost more than a standard roof. After all, you have to tend to the greenery. This is not true. Garden roofs provide incredible insulation. This keeps heat in and cold out during winter, and has the opposite effect during summer. Studies have indicated the entire cost of a garden roof can be saved in energy costs alone over its lifetime. Vegetation helps to remove carbon and air pollutants, reducing your building’s overall carbon footprint.
- Natural storm water management – Garden roofs in Lake Oswego naturally retain precipitation from rainfall. In winter this may be as high as 40%. In summer it can reach 90%. Once plants, grass, and trees use the water they need any extra releases through evaporation. This filters the water, and greatly reduces storm water runoff.
