SRS Roof Garden

SRS Roof Garden is any roof that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and supported by mineral-based soil. There are 2 types of roof gardens.

Extensive roof gardens
These have a very thin soil profile of between 140mm - 200mm. The plants range from ground covers up to small shrubs and all require irrigation for the establishment and sustaining over dry periods. The extensive green roofs are usually non-trafficable and only accessed for maintenance visits.

Intensive roof gardens
These have a deeper soil profile of 200mm up to 1-2m depending on structural load bearing capabilities and what is to be accommodated in the plant pallet. These look like parks on the roof and are made out of concrete bases and are trafficable hence require fall protection as part of the design.

Roof gardens come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Whether you are looking to create a green space that delivers environmental benefits or you are looking to create a space where more traditional gardening can take place, there is a wide range of benefits to installing a roof garden including stormwater management, energy savings, extending the life of your roof and expanding living space.

All roof gardens require a waterproof membrane that is designed to be used under roof gardens. SRS Group do not supply waterproof membranes, but your architect will be able to guide you on the best solution for their design.
