    It probably would not have enough light, plus there are probably some electrical issues or ordinances that it would not work with.

    But if you are looking to help the air quality and natural feel of the room, this video may interest you:

    I personally prefer low growing, hardier sedums for spaces like that. They take a lot of abuse, spread well, and keep grass at bay but don't compete with grass.

    Do you know the exact kind of insulation you will be using? There are several kinds of carbon neutral insulation. My gut says that it should work, but I would need to know the exact kind to be sure. Other than that, I would recommend testing it first. Perhaps you could snitch a small piece and see if it retains water. I am sorry I cannot be more help.

    No, it is not necessary to use concrete when placing this type of edging in the ground. However, it depends on what kind you are using and whether or not it will be built up (like a retaining wall), which may require mortar. If you're simply placing it around a bed (single layer), then leaving it as is should be adequate.
