Growing Green Guide

The Growing Green Guide provides technical advice on how to design, build and manage green roofs, walls and facades so they can provide multiple benefits over a long time span for building owners and the wider community.

It is estimated that there are more than 50 green walls, more than 100 green roofs and hundreds of green facades across Melbourne. Green roofs and walls provide a wide range of environmental, economic and social benefits, both public and private. They can reduce urban heat loadings and stormwater run-off, increase the energy efficiency and liveability of buildings, provide a range of habitat outcomes and even produce food.
