Have a look on the net and I think the book by Nigel Dunnett is the one to 
refer to.

The Rolls Royce car factory at Goodwood has a green roof.

What ho.
Just had a query from a client along the lines of what do I know about green 
roofs? Apparently they've been told to rake the fallen leaves off twice a 
year.
I have absolutely no knowledge of this topic so was wondering if anybody else 
had. Especially as green roofs are becoming more common and even a 
requirement on some developments.
I think in this case there's potential for an argument about a street tree, 
and of course it's in the heart of Sheffield's protest area, but it seems 
there might be another potential clash between trees and a planning policy.
I'd be interested to hear of anyone's experience.
Thanks as ever,
Bill.
