Planters & containers are essentially miniature rooftop gardens that have a media depth of 10 to 14 inches or fall within the deep intensive category. They require high-performance growth media to ensure plant growth, health and longevity. rooflite soil will not lose volume, which is essential for this system where root space is limited. With adjustable fill solutions for planters with different depths and sizes, this rooflite soil system supports a variety of plantings.

We also offer a soil system specification for planters & containers that have a total soil system depth of 10-18 inches.
