Semi-intensive green roofs recommend the planting of shrubs and grasses. Therefore, it is important to plan to install an automatic irrigation system to protect them from drought.

Does the green roof impact my energy consumption?

Yes, it impacts your energy consumption, insofar as, in summer, the roof protects against the heat and therefore you generally do not need air conditioning or a fan. And in winter, it acts as an insulator. This therefore reduces the electricity consumption at your home.
