Sod roofs are common on the Faroe Islands, west of Norway. Traditionally the roof was covered with sod on top of several layers of birch bark over wooden boards. Today, commercial roofing felt is used underneath the sod. Sod is an excellent insulator in a cold climate. Many residents mow or weedwack their roofs a few times during the summer months.
