Green Roof Substrates


Green Roof Substrate is an important component of a roof garden. The substrate ensures that the desired planting is able to grow on the roof.

The basis of each mixture is the correct nutritional value, for which we look at all the nutrients the plant needs. These can potentially be supplemented with additional fertilisers. The optimally tuned Green Roof Substrates ensure that every layer of vegetation receives appropriate nutrition.
