By Nigel Dunnett, Dusty Gedge, John Little, and Edmund C. Snodgrass

Winner of the 2012 American Horticultural Society Book Award



Until now, the green roof movement has been limited to large-scale, professional endeavors and public buildings. But homeowners everywhere are catching on to the benefits of a green roof — water conservation, energy savings, and storm water management.



In Small Green Roofs authors Dunnett, Gedge, Little, and Snodgrass profile ordinary homeowners who scaled green roofs down to the domestic level.



Small Green Roofs is the first book to focus on small-scale and domestic green roofs. More than forty profiles of small and domestic-scale projects of all shapes and sizes include green roofs on sheds, garden offices, studios, garages, houses, bicycle sheds, and other small structures, as well as several community projects.



For each project, details are given for design, construction, and installation, as well as how-to tips on how the roof was planted and cared for.



For readers looking for inspiration when hiring a contractor or taking the adventurous step of building their own, Small Green Roofs provides the knowledge and encouragement to make it possible.



Paperback. 256 pages. 8 x 9 in. 220 color photos, 15 line drawings.
