Why Florida Green Roofs Are So Environmentally Important

Here in Florida surface water can directly flow into the drinking aquifer below the ground in many places.  Here is a video of storm water flowing down into the ground through a karst connection to underground caverns after a recent rainfall event.
Cleaning rainfall runoff with green roofs and other urban greening projects before the stormwater reaches our drinking water supplies makes good sense.

Avoidance of pesticides, herbicides and lawn fertilizers and chemicals is good not only for our environment but also supports a cleaner and healthier place to live in.

I always take the simple things for granted in my life like my roof. There are people that don't have a good roof or one at all. I should be more thankful for what I have. http://www.hindmarshroofing.com.au
