LiveRoof® from Stormwater360 is a pre-vegetated, modular hybrid green roof system developed by growers and specifically designed to grow plants in a rooftop environment.
What makes LiveRoof® different from many other systems is that the plants are pre-grown and matured before installation, ensuring your green roof is established and functional before being installed on a roof.
Each LiveRoof® module arrives at the job site with fully-grown plants and is simply set in place on the rooftop. As a LiveRoof® system is delivered around 95% vegetated, with the plant's roots matured and extending to the bottom of the soil at the time of installation, there is minimal time, cost, or risk associated with rooftop establishment.
This unique modular system unites the entire soil continuum, allowing for the natural sharing of water, nutrients, and beneficial organisms across the whole roof strata. It also minimises hot, wet and dry zones, and avoids compartmentalising the growing medium into unnatural ‘grids’, which can happen with other systems.
Green roofs are multifunctional, with many benefits. Absorbing up to around 70% of the annual rainfall that falls on them, they can greatly reduce the volume of water entering the drainage system (reduce flooding risks). This can allow a larger footprint building to be built with less environmental effect.
The LiveRoof® modular green roof system uses Stormwater360's compliant green roof soil media and has numerous New Zealand native or sedum/succulent planting options.
