Green Roofs

Are you interested in a green roof to improve your home, and make it more environmentally friendly? Rhyno’s Landscaping installs and maintains a wide variety of vegetated roof systems from ultra-lightweight to highly elaborate green roof gardens.

Green roofs vs conventional roofs

The University of Michigan has compared the expected life-cycle costs and benefits of green roofs versus conventional roofs of the same size, and found that while a green roof costs approximately 25% more to install, it saves close to 50% of the initial investment over its lifetime.

Nearly two-thirds of those savings come from reduced energy use. Additional savings come from improved storm water management, and public health benefits of absorbing nitrogen oxides and mitigating air pollution.
