Too many people assume green-roofed houses are for hobbits, and hobbits only. Over in Scandinavia though, things are different. They have been planting greenery atop their houses for hundreds of years,and even have a competition every year to determine the best green roof project in Scandinavia by the Scandinavian Green Roof Association!

The green roof’s effect on the landscape is terrific.Moreover,the verdant roofs have many advantages,because they absorb rainwater, reduce winter heating costs, reduce summer air-conditioning costs, provide insulation from noise and sound, and are long lasting… That’s why green rooftops become a thing and now they’re turning viral in the north.
