GO GREEN WITH GREEN ROOFS!

They Would Make Your House Look Like It Just Sprouted From The Ground, That’s How Green It Will Feel

This brings an all new meaning to being immersed in nature, these homes in Scandinavia feature green roofs which involve adding vegetation on a roof, this not only gives it an aesthetic appeal but it also gives a lot of benefits to the home it’s on.

Green roofs are eco-friendly due to their ability to absorb water, provide insulation, and even provide a little space for some smaller wildlife. The appeal of green roofs, also called living roofs, really covers both the aesthetic and functional aspects of conventional roofing.

If you’re also a fan of, or even just familiar with, J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings” then you’ll see the appeal of having homes that resemble those of the hobbits.

These adorable homes prove that a grassy canopy can make the perfect ceiling addition to any house. Green roofs are traditional in many Nordic countries throughout Europe, so much so that there is an annual competition to determine the best green roof project, which is hosted by the Scandinavian Green Roof Association (SGRA)
