Design builder simulation software was used to determine the effects of rooftop garden on annual energy consumption of cooling load of four story commercial building in Ahmedabad. The thermal resistance of grass, Xps sheet, thermocrete were estimated using data from Software, and the effects on the building energy consumption of a roof garden with these methods were simulated. For roof garden different soil thickness on the building has been done & simulated. The results showed that the installation of roof gardenon four story commercial building can results in saving of ₹ 1, 53,180in annual cooling load consumption, and garden was found to be the most effective in reducing building energy consumption. The results also revealed that the increase of soil thickness would further reduce the building energy consumption and the moisture content of soil can affect the outcome quite substantially.
