I can't remember where I read about this. For a living roof you can lay used carpet over your main support(plywood, planks, lots of sticks, etc.). On top of the used carpet lay recycled plastic sheeting. You could probably find this from painters. Then another layer of used carpet on top of that. That should work as a water proof layer for a living roof. The used carpet keeps the plastic from getting torn by splinters, nails, rocks, sticks, and such. Since the uv rays cant reach the plastic, it shouldnt break down very quickly. I think I may have read about this from the earthship people. Tim __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
