GKH is primarily a site devoted to home gardeners and gardening rather than commercial operations. I can suggest that you research, and communicate with, companies that specialize in roof gardens in cities around the world, especially in climates similar to yours. Also, learn all that you can about horticulture from your local sources, such as https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/beneficial/insect-pollination-process.htm

Make sure your selecting plants that are hardy to your growing zone. Perennials will go dormant during the winter months and

it's a good idea to offer more protection during this time if they are vulnerable to the elements.

Here is a couple of great articles that will help you get your plants ready for next winter.

Q. rooftop gardening

How deep does the soil need to be for a rooftop garden? I’m just doing some research for a book I’m trying to write. I don’t have a green thumb. I’ve been known to kill cactus. The story includes a rooftop garden, and I’m trying to figure out about what kind of dimensions I will be working with.
