Small Green Roofs: Ancaya Garden Shed

This small green roof on a garden shed in Raleigh, North Carolina, demonstrates how green roofs reduce stormwater runoff, aid in natural cooling and attract native birds and pollinators.

"Small Green Roofs" focuses on small-scale and domestic green roofs and profiles more than 40 projects of all shapes and sizes, from green roofs on garden sheds and garages to houses and studios.
