Abstract or Summary
  • There are a number of problems associated with urban expansion and as cities continue to grow the integration of green roofs can help to ease and offset many of them. This study uses a combination of moss and Sedum as vegetation for experimental green roof sections in order to test its ability to improve functional performance of green roofs under weather conditions similar to that of the Pacific Northwest. Varying degrees of differences in potential functional performance were found between each of the treatments. The combination of moss and Sedum showed the capacity to provide improved functional performance as green roof vegetation in the Pacific Northwest.
