Rooftop gardens are intensive green roofs that have a media depth of 8 to 14 inches. Rooftop gardens are truly “landscaping the roof” and frequently offer accessible amenity space along with lush vegetation. This rooflite soil system supports a wide variety of plants.

We also offer a soil system specification for rooftop gardens that have a total soil system depth of 12-18 inches.
