Issues covered range from understanding relevant legislation and whether existing buildings are suitable for retrofit, through to specific dynamics such as choices of vegetation, substrate and drainage and their bearings on structural capacity, biodiversity and sustainable drainage systems (SUDS).

Important questions regarding cost, maintenance and aesthetic appeal are also examined, giving designers valuable tools with which to assess and discuss with clients how best their goals are to be met.
