Practical session during day 2 of the living roof & ecosystem services course, Oxford

What do green or living roofs have to do with ponds? I hear you say? well during the course the tutor showed some photos of living roofs which are designed to create temporary pools – this was something I wanted to look into to se whether I could add another pond but on a roof on my property.

It looks like this is possible. Another aspect in ecosystem services included rain gardens such as the ones made in the US. Can all this be applied in the UK?
