I stumbled upon some information that raised my interest in visiting Norway! These awesome plant growing roofs are seen on the remote inlands. The concept of ‘turf roof’ came into existence hundreds of years ago and it used to be a common sight those times. It has become less common nowadays but I have read that since 2000, an award is given to the best green roof project in Scandinavia by the board of the Scandinavian Green Roof Association to promote this concept. There are different kinds of turf roofs, some velvety green, some golden yellow and some extremely colourful with flowers grown on them. I find this to be a very beautiful and unique way of going green!!
