Sky Garden and Green Roofs as Insulators

Lush greens everywhere we look. Your guess is right…these pictures were taken from a garden. Not garden on the ground but garden on the sky! We went to SM North Edsa last Sunday to celebrate hubby’s birthday and visiting that place is not complete without visiting their sky garden.

Sky garden and green roofs are now popular in other countries for they are good insulators. A roof of a house or building is partially or completely covered with plants, planted over a waterproofing membrane. It helps to lower urban air temperatures. By minimizing heat absorbing surfaces it helps to reduce energy cost inside the house or building as well. It is best for tropical countries like ours where the sun is shining the whole year. I can’t imagine how much energy we can save if we all have green roofs.
