Green Roof: Garden Cost and Savings


Green Roofs
cost from $15-$30 per square foot installed. The cost varies depending on the type of roof garden system, project size and accessibility, height of the building, square footage of pavers, quantity of planters, and the overall design complexity.

Reduce Heating, Cooling, Energy & More

  • Reduced HVAC Costs: The ambient temperature on a unvegetated roof can reach 160F. A green roof reduces this temperature by as much as 60F. For every 1 degree the ambient air that an HVAC unit intakes is reduced, a 1% reduction in energy use results. This can equate to substantial, long-term energy savings.
  • Reduced Heating & Cooling Costs: The roof garden is able to transfer heat from the rooftop and away from the building by a process know as evapotransporation. This reduces the HVAC energy costs for the space directly below the green roof.
  • Roof Membrane Life Extension: Roofs that are covered by a green roof are protected from harmful UV rays, and will last twice as long as unprotected roofs. This has been proven in Germany where roof gardens have been used for the past 25 years.
  • Reducing Stormwater Runoff Costs: Installing a roof garden will reduce the amount of stormwater runoff by as much as 60%. This reduction in impervious areas saves money when constructing a new building and reduces the size of drainage systems.
  • Marketability: A roof garden positions your project or building as being truly "green". In today's real estate market, tenants are leasing and buying green space much faster than traditional space. This helps you to minimize vacancies and increase profits.
