    schema:description "Provides design inspiration and practical advice on using green roofs and living walls. Extensively illustrated with photographs and drawings, it highlights the most exciting green roof and living wall projects in Australia and New Zealand within an international context. Cities around the world are becoming denser, with greater built form resulting in more hard surfaces and less green space, leaving little room for vegetation or habitat. One way of creating more natural environments within cities is to incorporate green roofs and walls in new buildings or to retrofit them in existing structures. The installation of green roofs and walls has many benefits, including: - management of stormwater and improved water quality - reducing the 'urbane heat island effect' - increasing real estate values around green roofs - reducing energy consumption."@en ;
