Green roofs have been a feature of the urban landscape for decades but today their growth is booming.

The Globe and Mail invites you to share photos of your favourite green roofs.

E-mail us a high-quality, jpeg-format photo. Make sure it's horizontal. We'll put it in an online photo gallery to accompany a coming Property Report feature.

We'll also need:

1) Your name;

2) Your city, province or territory;

3) The name and address of the building where the green roof is located;

4) Tell us a bit about the roof. When was it started? What kind of plants grow on it? What benefit does it bring to your workplace?
