Modern green roofs, like a living thatch

There should be hi-tech 21st-century versions of the traditional turf roofs still found in parts of Scandinavia.

A green roof is one covered with a thin layer of growing material which, in turn, supports a range of low-maintenance plants such as stonecrop and moss

They’re good for insects and birds, they soak up between 50 and 80 per cent of the rainwater that falls on them, and they provide natural insulation. Better than a thatched roof but ideal for village houses.
