Grow a living roof for your garden shed

The mirror reports on the how to grow a roof on your garden shed.

3 reasons to do it

Other than simply looking fantastic, living roofs will:

1. Attract wildlife – beneficial insects and useful pollinators will love the new green space.

2. Use up rainwater during the wet season, reducing localised flooding.

3. Have great insulating properties and help keep temperatures inside the shed more constant – cooler in the summer and warmer in winter.
