Arcane Estate Garden
Green roofs have become increasingly popular over the past several years due to their ability to provide a wide range of sustainability, energy and ecological benefits while often enhancing the aesthetic qualities and architectural creativity of buildings.

Green roof technology replaces traditional rooftops with an assembly consisting of:

1) A waterproofing membrane;

2) An engineered soil support system that includes insulation and elements for critical moisture retention and drainage within the shallow soil profile;

3) A filter fabric to keep soil particles out of the drainage system; and

4) An engineered growing medium and selected plantings. By replicating natural processes, the garden roof becomes a highly self-sustaining ecosystem that can greatly extend the life of the roof's waterproofing membrane, provide insulation that lowers cooling/ heating costs, mitigate storm water runoff, and reduce the "urban heat island effect."

If the heart of a green roof is its drainage/ water retention elements, as many green roof experts often emphasize, then the soul of a green roof is its growing medium. As much as any design consi
