SDAPP Fact Sheet 8.1 - Green Roofs/Walls/Facades

This fact sheet provides information about green roofs, walls and facades that can be designed to cool a building, help reduce stormwater runoff, increase biodiversity and provide more greenery in the city - which is known to reduce people’s stress levels and improve mental health. Incorporating vegetated roofs and vertical surfaces into existing and new developments can increase the appeal and marketability of properties. This fact sheet has been developed from the Growing Green Guide: A guide to green roofs, walls and facades in Melbourne and Victoria, Australia.
