Yeah but I might trade bugs for having to paint the damn thing!

Awesomeness! I assume there is a concrete structure under that so rot is minimal?

It probably provides excellent insulation. I am assuming all the plants are evergreens. If not it is most likely very unsightly during the winter season.

They could plant some Venus Flytraps to take care of the bug problem.

green roofs and green walls are very good things if done right. I've been following their popularity with interest. Remember the new California Academy of Sciences building? Largest "green" building and I think largest green roof.

I think green roof is the wrong way to go, better to cover the roof with solar collectors.

I would opt for the solar panels too.

Um guys... this is in England. Land of cloud and rain and short days in winter. Furthermore, this is n London. Is there such a thing as a smog panel?
