Grassy roofs

These are modern houses, but built to look old. Grassy roofs were quite common in the old days, especially in the countryside. This picture was taken near Holmenkollen, an area where people usually are quite wealthy.

Oh wow, that's fascinating. How do they keep the grass growing up there? Is there soil? If yes, how do you keep it from eroding/sliding off when it rains?

Pardon the questions please. I just find it amazing!
