Green Roof


Has anybody tried "greening" their roof? I want to put some sort of garden up there, if only to lower the interior temperatures from the blistering sun.

I need some info on supplies and methods, since all the green sites provide no information on how it is done. I guess that is another way they make money. I'm sure that these supplies are only produced by them and they are not very green at all.

I also found some others with types of materials, but not where to purchase them. Must be a big monopoly...green products should really start becoming more available so more people can use them and lower the costs.

Now I just need to know what kind of load-bearing limits my house has...
