The invention is growing media to accommodate roofs as steep as 45º (12/12 pitch). The modular, light-weight design makes shipping and installation easy.
- Individual blocks of growing media (clay, composted pine, polystyrene) fasten together to form a continuous base layer.
- Dry, light-weight and stackable blocks are easy to store, ship and install.
- Interlocking design provides maximum stability.
- Vertical water retention layers evenly distribute moisture across the entire roof.
