Intensive green roof and Extensive green roof 

A roof garden is a building roof that is overlaid with vegetation and soil. It is part of a waterproofing system and plays an aesthetic and effective role: absorbing rainwater, regulating temperature on the roof thanks to insulation provided, contributing to mitigate the heat island effect.

There are two types of roof gardens:
Intensive green roof: this system supports heavy weight load on the roof from small home gardens, public gardens to an entire park. It is characterized by a high variety of plants from herbaceous plants to small trees and requires irrigation, fertilization, and maintenance. Intensive green roofs offer a great potential for design and biodiversity. This system supports heavy weight load on the roof from small home gardens, public gardens to an entire park. It is characterized by a high variety of plants from herbaceous plants to small trees and requires irrigation, fertilization, and maintenance. An intensive green roof offers a great potential for landscape design and biodiversity. 

Extensive green roof: this system is not designed for public access and has access limited to maintenance like any typical wateproofing membrane. Its vegetation is characterized by sedums to small grasses, herbs and flowering herbaceous plants, which need little maintenance, nutrient, and no permanent irrigation system. It has lightweight load.
A number of considerations need to be taken into account when planning a roof garden such as exposure, roof pitch, appearance or light vegetation with simple maintenance , load per unit area, budget, maintenance level constraints.
