What do I need to consider before installing a green roof?Apart from the strength and water-tightness of the roof, discussed earlier, think about how all the elements will work. ‘During the planning, consider the drainage so the finish is neat,’ advises Simon. ‘You don’t really want a drainpipe sticking out.’Also, it might sound obvious, but think about how you intend to access the roof to deal with repairs or touch up planting – it’s important you (or a professional) can get up there easily and safely.Spring and autumn are the optimum times to install green roofs for the roots to establish well so, if possible, organise the project to coincide with one of these seasons.
