 Rooftop Landscapes Makes Gardening on Roofs a Possibility
(www.saroofing.co.za)

“Rooftop Landscapes are designed in accordance with the worldwide industry-leading European Standard. Decades of research and experience in these technologies have shown that simply laying soil over a roof and planting plants is not a long-term solution and can cause damage to the roof structure and waterproofing membrane. A well-designed rooftop garden must retain sufficient moisture for the plants, while allowing excess water to drain freely so that water does not sit on your roof and oversaturate the soil. It must be as lightweight as possible to minimise stresses on the building structural members. Lastly, it must protect the roof structure and waterproofing membrane from aggressive plant roots. Thus, a living roof is a long-term investment. We ensure a trouble-free garden on your roof for decades through responsive design engineering and stringent standards of installation and maintenance.”
