The city of Nashville, Tenn., is promoting the installation of green roofs through a measure providing a $10 reduction in a property's sewer fees for every square foot of vegetative roof.

Vegetative roofs are catching on at some buildings, such as Music City Center, which has plants on 28% of its 14.5-acre roof.
