In the course of writing my ebook Creating My Green Roof I’ve used several books, websites, and other research materials that have been super helpful. In this section I will share the best ones with you and my thoughts about using them.
The links to Amazon earn me a small commission if you purchase them. I will never recommend a product or resource here that I have not used myself and trust.
