Biodiversity and Semi-Intensive Green Roofs

They say variety is the spice of life and this indeed tends to be the case when creating a green roof to promote biodiversity.  Green roofs with both intensive and extensive portions have been found to support the highest amount of biodiversity.  The combination of sedum meadow, grasses, and shrubs provides not just food but shelter for several species.  More information covering biodiversity on semi-intensive green roofs can be found on our case studies page in "Where the Beetles are Crawling and the Honey Bees are Humming." 

Visit us next week as we conclude our biodiversity segment with biodiversity on extensive green roofs!
