Benefits of Green-tree Extensive Roof Garden Substrate
Lightweight and simple to work with
Lightweight soil reduces density which alternatively enhances drainage performance ultimately making it simple to work with on-site.
Controlled fertility levels
Provides a suitable level of nutrients for the type of vegetation planted in extensive green roof projects such as sedum.
Good aeration and water holding properties
Features good air movement through the soil structure while soaking up rainfall to limit flooding or run off.
The soil has strong characteristics where the soil materials hold together to resist deformation and rupture, guaranteeing consistency throughout the green roof installation.
Suitable for low maintenance roofs with no/limited access
Extensive green roofs are intended to be viewed from elsewhere as a visual or ecological feature. The vegetation requires low maintenance unless in hot weather conditions where the vegetation may
need an extra boost.
We supply Green-tree Roof Garden Substrates across the UK to some of the most complex and impressive green roof projects we have in this country.
