The Growing Green Guide for Melbourne is a free industry-standard guide to integrating vegetation with construction through green roofs, walls and facades.

A Victorian Premier’s Sustainability Award education award winner, the guide has been downloaded thousands of times, translated into other languages and used as a teaching tool around the world.

We wrote the technical guidelines throughout the guide, informed by our extensive green roof, wall and façade research.
