Transform your unused space
Building areas that are typically unused like roofs and walls have been identified as potential areas to grow vegetation.
There are two main types:
1.) Roof Top Gardens or Intensive Green Roofs
Roof Top Gardens or Intensive Green Roofs have a deeper layer of soil which allows an array of vegetation to be grown offering building inhabitants attractive recreational space. Anything from flowers, trees, lawn, fresh fruit and vegetables can be grown in designated areas. These areas are heavier, require irrigation and usually involve an extensive maintenance program.
2.) Extensive Green Roofs and Green Walls
Extensive Green Roofs and Green Walls generally consist of single mass vegetation offering the building an extra ecological protective layer that is aesthetically pleasing. The extra ‘green’ layer provides the building with added insulation, shade and energy savings. These roofs are typically inaccessible and generally have a thin layer of soil. They are low maintenance and do not require irrigation.
