The Rainproof program (by Waternet) and the Rooftop Revolution Foundation present a new infographic explaing the importance and concept of extra water storage in the drainage layer for high quality functional green roofs. We want green roofs to perform a lot of important functions for us (cool the city, reduce heat influx into the builidng, provide space for humans and biodiversity and so on), but order tob e able to do so, the plants need water. That is why the combination of rainwater capture, storgae and reuse is such a successful one!
