Rooftop trees are a special category of deep intensive systems. With a media depth of 14 inches or more, they require two different types of media to provide the right mix of aeration and organic matter for the deeper root zone, which this rooflite soil system provides. The top layer can be installed directly on top of the base layer without using a separation fabric, similar to natural soil profiles with different horizons that have specific properties.
