We have all seen pictures of the supposedly eco friendly earth houses or green-designed buildings which have earth and grass for their roofing. This is supposed to help regulate temperatures, be made out of environmentally safe and eco friendly renewable resources, and it is of course supposed to give off the air of being planet safe.
However, this is not always the case. If you do a search for grass roofing on Google Images, you will see that many homes and buildings have yellowed or browned grass roofing, and that some of the grass seed is no longer there, exposing the roof to wind and rain erosion.
The truth is, eco roofing can be great and look and feel great, but it still must be maintained. If you see the grass around your house a lot, then you will be more likely to water it and keep it up, but if you only go out on your roof a little bit throughout the year, then you are unaware when it needs to be replenished with grass seed, especially to hold down the soil, when it needs to be freshened up and watered, when it needs to be cut and mowed, and when it needs some direct sunlight. This is a hint to not plant trees blocking the sun during any time of the year from your grass roofing.
Other techniques involve using dust suppressor, like our soil wetta product, on your eco roofing. Some people feel that just mud will do the trick, but like body hair which helps to regulate temperatures between the inside and outside of the skin, grass roofing is much better and it also holds the soil in place.
