Biodiverse roofs are intended to generally provide a habitat to create a wider diversity of flora and fauna compared to a traditional sedum green roof. They are often designed to either recreate or even improve the habitat that was lost when the building was erected. These types of roofs can be constructed to provide the right conditions for specific plants which in turn support other insect and bird species. Often wildflowers, grasses and sedums are the main species of vegetation designed to thrive within such systems.
The planting can be managed more heavily to produce a controlled environment. Alternatively, less management input may lead to the development of vegetation which progresses naturally relating to the prevailing conditions and changes naturally over the years.
