Green roofs differ from a natural environment as they are on top of a building and are not connected to the natural ground. rooflite® Certified Green Roof Media is lightweight and performance characteristics have been optimally engineered for this unique environment. It is critical that rooflite® soils can drain and retain water simultaneously and that they work even in very shallow systems. rooflite® products must also function long-term without jeopardizing the building below. Healthy plant growth and proper green roof performance strongly depend on using the right growing media.

Consistency, Quality, and Experience. The rooflite® regional network currently consists of 28 blending locations within the Americas. Every production partner goes through a thorough licensing process.

When planning your project, it is important to know exactly how much media you will need. Factors that can contribute to your media needs are Volume, Installation and Compaction. Visit our rooflite growing media calculator and ensure you have the right amount of material.
