However, implementation of green roofs is limited by high construction and maintenance costs. Consequently, green roof projects often disproportionately benefit wealthy communities and can further marginalise disadvantaged comm...
Plant health and cover are critical components of stormwater mitigation on green roofs. Green roof plants can be selected from analogous habitats (e.g. rocky outcrops) and/or by using plant traits associated with survival (e.g. succulence). Plants selected for stormwater mitigation should have high transpiration to replenish substrate storage capac...
