- Providing green spaces in urban areas

Going green with brown roofing
Brown roofs have many of the same benefits and construction methods as green roofs. When a brown roof is designed, the main aim is to encourage biodiversity. Because they usually use local soil and spoil to provide the substrate for the roof, the roof will often initially be brown in colour. However, over time, plant species will grow over this substrate and the end result will be a green coloured roof that nature has had a large hand in designing.
