Maintenance is critical for functional, flourishing green roofs – ensuring they deliver the long-term benefits for which they were designed – including rainwater capture, biodiversity enhancement and cool, green spaces for people to enjoy.

In this free, online1.5-hour workshop, research experts and practitioners in green roof design and maintenance will outline the key maintenance requirements for a range of Australian green roofs.

Participants will gain a broad understanding of green roof maintenance considerations as well as detailed information on specific tasks for different types of large and small systems such as roofs for storm water control, podium gardens and residential projects.

Hear from green roof experts and have your questions answered in a live Q & A session.
