Green roofs have become a popular strategy in urban stormwater management in the recent years. However, the hydrological performance of green roofs can vary substantially due to design characteristics and environmental conditions. This study is aimed to review all the controlling factors that affecting the stormwater retention performance of green roofs. Current hydrological research on green roofs involving different plant species, substrate types and environmental conditions are reviewed and evaluated in detail. Better understandings on the controlling factors that affecting the hydrological performance of extensive green roofs will be benefiting to the successful implementation of green roof system in the future.
