The Growing Green Guide (‘the guide’) has been developed with advice from industry experts and knowledge from academic research, to explain how to create high quality green roofs, walls and facades.
The development of the guide was supported by four inner Melbourne local governments through the Inner Melbourne Action Plan (the cities of Melbourne, Port Phillip, Yarra and Stonnington) and by the State Government of Victoria, through the Victorian Adaptation and Sustainability Partnership. The University of Melbourne is a project partner.
This guide is written for professionals who may be involved in the design, construction and maintenance of green roofs, walls and/or facades. It is also relevant to developers, homeowners, and local and state governments.
The guide is targeted at projects based in Melbourne and Victoria, Australia, but is also largely relevant for a wider geographic area
