About The Small Green Roofs Guide

The small green roofs guide deals with any roof really, but is aimed at people wanting to green up an existing shed or small extension up to 60m2. The Small Green Roofs Guide can also be used as the basis of the design for new buildings. Especially small outdoor classrooms, summer and garden houses and even a standard flat roof.

We will reiterate this throughout the guide where relevant – but the structural guidance is only a guide. We recommend that a qualified person be contacted to ensure that planned roof have  can take the kind of green roof you want.
