We have (had) a green roof here at Mole Valley District Council ... as shrubs 
matured roots grew through and damaged the roof and the Housing Department 
got wet!

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.
