MetroVerde's Biodiverse Green Roof. Extensive, Lightweight, Hurricane Designed Green Roof for Urban Core.

Biodiversity in the Urban Core can be truly supported by Green Roofs.  Here the Breaking Ground Green Roof has over two hundred different species of wildflowers, herbs, vegetables and plants, attracting pollinators, amphibians, reptiles and birds.

The BGC Green Roof treats and cleans stormwater, mitigates Urban Heat Island effect, sequesters carbon dioxide, fills the air with fresh oxygen, affords educational opportunities and so much more.

The BGC Green Roof is a MetroVerde Green Roof, a very light weight system tested by the University of Florida under tropical storm and hurricane force winds with the large wind turbine testing equipment located within the Civil Engineering Department at UF.

 The roof shown here has been in existence for approximately four years and is applied directly over white TPO roofing.

 Hopefully we will see more and more Green Roofs within the Urban Core as the worth (economic, ecological and social) of sustainable design becomes more and more apparent.

This is a great idea! This would definitely work for those people living in apartment complexes and have a wide rooftop or are living in their houses with a rooftop! Not only can we save space but also help the environment and reduce our carbon dioxide footprint!

This is amazing! Green roofs are indeed the new innovative idea to help combat global warming. Now that we are consuming all of our available land areas and converting them into commercial complexes, we need to find alternatives to keep our ecosystem balanced, and I think having a green roof is a wonderful solution.

I think a green roof is the future of the green revolution. This is something that every single one of us can do in our own homes, which can really help the declining greenery in our planet. It may not be as great as virgin rainforests, but it will surely do its contribution.
