Why do you feel the need to put green roof in quotes. it is not a mythical creation but a construction system used extensively around the world

No disrespect meant to "green," er, I mean green roofs; but it is a neologism that remains relatively unfamiliar to non-archi-wonks, and is not literally a green-painted conventional roof, so the quotation marks serve to acknowledge all that for a general audience. Or at least that's how I'd call it while wearing my editor hat.
