Layers of Experience, Layers of Innovations
Sedum blankets, instant vegetation
Boasts a 90 per cent coverage with a broad variety of mature plants species, field-grown for a minimum of 12 months. This full foliage canopy protects soil erosion and prevents lateral water flow. Comes in rolls and easy to install.
Engineered growing medium
Proprietary, FLL compliant, soil recipe preferred by vegetated roofing plants and especially formulated for rooftop application. It encourages microbial soil health, healthier plants, reduces runoff and eliminate irrigation and the potential need for synthetic fertilizers.
Stormwater retention can be further enhanced by Urbanscape®’s Mineral Hydro Cubes or Hydro Flocks.
Needled Mineral Hydro Blanket
Innovative and lightweight, the Needled Mineral Hydro Blanket comes in rolls easy to install. An excellent alternative to traditional growing media, the Hydro Blanket instantly absorbs rainwater and ensures superior water retention in green roofs. It is made of long virgin rock mineral fibers specially needled to form a dimensionally stable and retains 90% of its volume in water. The simple rock fibers have high capillary capacity to naturally attract water. Roots love to grow into them.
