BAD PRACTICE of green roofs – learning from mistakes

BAD PRACTICE of green roofs – learning from mistakes

Share mistakes from various green roofs projects
we encountered in our careers so that they are not repeated.

As part of the online seminar series the EFB gave an overview of different mistakes that can be made when planning green roofs.

To secure high quality in planning, building and maintaining green roofs, transferring know-how is very important. Green roofs have been around for a very long time. Nevertheless, mistakes are sometimes made by:

  • Requirements not met
  • Design and planning mistakes
  • Installation problems
  • Maintenance issues

Two experienced experts from the Czech Republic and Belgium report from their practice on mistakes that have been made so that others can learn from these bad examples.
Listen and watch their examples and impressing images and get useful strategies to avoid making the same mistakes again.


This webinar was supported by: Optigrün international AGRain Bird Corporation and 6 Fürs Grün GmbH.
