We've blogged a bit about green roofs over at Re-Nest, and most of the photos we've seen of this latest roofing solution tend to look a bit...Hobbit-esque. However, this Tokyo structure has a roof that puts our front lawn to shame!

Green roofs are slowly catching on--we're seeing more and more of them especially in cities. We're a bit skeptical about how well green roofing will do with our climate, but the idea of grass overhead is pretty cool. Check out some of the benefits at EcoGeek where they delve deeper in the subject, and offer some answers to anyone interested in installing a green roof on their home.
