LiveRoof provides the Natural Function and Natural Beauty of “built in place” green roof systems but without the extensive ongoing costs of maturation. LiveRoof offers the speed of installation of modules but without grid lines or compartmentalization of soil. LiveRoof systems offer the prevegetation of carpet or sod-like green roof systems but with a broader plant palette and without the need for excessive watering and maintenance required by mat systems (for establishment).
We populate each module with locally blended engineered soils and locally selected and grown RoofTop Proven™ plants, under the care of local professional horticulturists. Each local licensed grower in our network has decades of experience growing plants in the local climate, and uses this knowledge to select the right plants for the unique challenges of each project.
The LiveRoof system was the first to receive FM Approval, a Class A Fire Rating, and to conduct Full Scale Wind Uplift testing. Our organization has bred, selected and introduced dozens of plants which thrive in the rigorous challenges of rooftop environments. We make design easy, providing personalized expert support, an online custom spec writer, a Designer’s Checklist to avoid common challenges on green roofs, and CAD and Revit compatible details in 2D and 3D (BIM) formats.
