Laurel Valley Soils, an authorized blender for Skyland USA, manufactures rooflite® Certified Green Roof Media. Green roofs capture and reduce stormwater runoff, prevent heat island effect in cities, and often increase the waterproofing integrity and lifespan of roofs.
The technically engineered and lightweight soils required for green roofs are primarily designed for use when covering large flat roofs with hearty succulent ground cover plants. These soils can also be used on sloped roofs and for more ornamental landscape type plantings that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Incorporating STA Certified Premium Compost provides many benefits to green roof blends, including moisture retention and nutrients.
