Home / Green Roof and Walls

 

One of our specialties is building green roofs and walls. We have done several large scale projects for institutions and government agencies, as well as smaller applications like green office walls and shed roofs. See a partial list of projects…
Green roofs have a proven track record for reducing our carbon footprint, especially in larger cities. In addition, green roofs create new living spaces, improve aesthetics, prolong the life of roofs, insulate from heat and cold, improve air quality, reduce stormwater runoff and the urban heat island effect.
According to research reviewed by Atmos, green roofs insulate buildings, slash energy costs, cut the rate of heat absorption through the roof of a building by up to 84%, thus reducing its temperature and the need for cooling. This leads to further energy savings and can be expected to last between 2.5 to 3.5 times longer than roofs made from standard materials, slashing roof repair and replacement costs. Let Broccolo Tree & Lawn Care work with you to save energy, clean water, and money by building green roofs.

Green walls remove airborne toxins such as volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) exuded by cleaning products, building materials, adhesives, paints and carpet. These can be up to ten times higher inside structures. Plants improve air quality significantly through photosynthesis. They make humans healthier by removing carbon dioxide that is harmful and releasing oxygen into the air for inhabitants to breathe. Studies have documented people have reduced stress and sick days, more creativity, reduced noise levels and electrostatic pollution from computers and appliances.
