Vital Earth Green Roofs
For the Green Roof Professional & Commercial Users
A comprehensive guide to specialist green roof growing media and sources of
information for enterprises involved in the creation and design of sustainable
Green Roof solutions.
We have developed a range of growing media for Green Roofs, as we recognise both the positive impacts of these projects and the benefits a flourishing green roof offers commercial enterprises, local authorities, the public and wildlife.
A green roof reduces run-off and thus flooding. It reduces noise levels, provides UV protection, insulation/energy saving and urban cooling/heat alleviation. It absorbs CO2 and reduces air pollution.
A green roof attracts wildlife: increasing biodiversity and enhancing living and working spaces. In addition, Life Cycle Assessment shows that green roofs cost the same as or less than conventional roofing: benefiting the environment, while affording cost benefits to users.
Those environmental benefits are applauded by government at a local, national and European level. Inclusion of a green roof in a planning application already aids approval and it is very likely to become mandatory.
