According to a recent study published, roof garden help buildings beat the heat and reduce the room temperature. They said that during the study period temperature fluctuations were recorded in both the green roof and reference roof, but in the green roof they were kept at a minimum. The scientific explanation according to the study is that the surface temperatures on the terrace decreases due to evaporation of moisture from the soil. One researcher recently quotes about nurturing the green roof that, “We only switch on the air-conditioner for two months in a year. Once we increase the installation of rooftop garden or terrace garden, we have not had to use the air-conditioner at all”. Isn’t amazing?
