It is important that a building owner knows before purchasing a vegetative green roof that some supplemental irrigation will need to be provided.
Fertilizing vegetative green roof plants for the first three to five years will allow the plants to establish root systems and foliage necessary to become self-sustaining.
Weeds regularly should be removed from vegetative green roofs to prevent them from becoming a huge chore.
