Will a green roof work in winter?


Green roofs are still able to perform in cold weather, although not necessarily at the same level of effectiveness as during warm seasons. The soil in green roofs is porous and remains pervious when frozen. Consequently, rainfall as well as snow that melts during freeze-thaw cycles can still be stored, although the water will not be used by dormant plants.
