What is green roof growing media?

Green roof growing media can be defined as an engineered soil that both mimics and improves on the properties of natural soil. Native soil cannot be used on green roofs due to its excessive weights, its inability to retain sufficient amounts of moisture, as well as its inability to drain excessive amounts of moisture properly.
