I do not know why there is not more living roof designs in gardens. They are very practical in helping to reduce heat at the height of the midday sun. The main problem is to avoid rotting of the materials and leaks after rain. With todays materials and automatic watering systems this is not so much a problem as it once was. I often toy with the idea of putting one on my house roof. This show garden shows one method of achieving a roof garden that is both practical and looks good.
