Greens on rooftops can be a beautiful addition for visitors and residents in areas that have limited access to parks. Rooftop applications using sprinkler systems store excessive water making them unnecessarily heavy due to the high amount of soil requirement. With the iMat a freely draining lightweight planting media is used instead. The capillarity of this media is highly reduced, compared to topsoil. This results in rooftops having the ability to collect rainwater and use it for irrigation, as opposed to moving into a drainage layer that leads to waste.
The ability to distribute water laterally through the iMat eases the weight and conserves water, making it the perfect option for rooftops – not mention a rooftop detention system can be omitted.
If you are going to put greens on rooftops, the iMat is the smart watering solution.
