GRO green roof code

Green roofs are becoming much more popular among architects, homeowners and developers for environmental and visual reasons and to tick a sustainability box on a planning proposal.Despite the fact that the market for green roofs has expanded in the last decade, and that a specialist and dedicated group of experts has emerged, there is still misinformation and disagreement about the best way of installing and then maintaining a green roof.

GRO, the Green Roof Organisation developed a code of practice to define what is required when planning and creating a green roof. The guide, known as the GRO Green Roof Code,Gro_PMS_363_ws is available from the LivingRoofs.org Website.
