LiveRoof® is the only modular green roof system that uses Soil Elevator™ and Moisture Portal™ technology to unite the entire soil continuum, making it unique as the PROVEN, patented hybrid green roof system.

Natural Function
Our green roof system’s hybrid design allows for the natural sharing of water, nutrients and beneficial organisms across the entire rooftop strata. It also minimizes hot, wet, and dry zones, and avoids compartmentalizing the growing medium into unnatural ‘grids’ as is the case with other modular systems.

By not compartmentalizing the soil into ‘grids,’ LiveRoof functions as nature intended.

Natural Beauty  
The aesthetic advantages of LiveRoof are significant, and during spring, summer, fall or winter, LiveRoof® looks like a beautiful meadow. Depending upon design, other systems may look man-made, especially during the dormant season.

LiveRoof is an Instant Green Roof
Each LiveRoof module arrives to the job site with fully grown plants inside the container and is simply set in place on the rooftop.  The unique patent-pending Soil Elevators™ are then removed for a seamless fit.  No need to start with a brown roof and farm it for years, hoping and waiting for it to become a green roof.

Local Expertise
With over 20 accredited Green Roof Professionals (GRP) in our grower and sales network, the LiveRoof’s outstanding product design is backed by unsurpassed expertise and customer service.

Subterranean Module
Gives a meadow-like look with no ‘grid’ lines.  It also protects the module itself from photodegradation.

RoofTop Proven™ Plants
LiveRoof systems are locally grown under care of professional horticulturists, who select RoofTop Proven plant mixes suitable to each project.  Many of the plants in the systems are exclusively breed, selected and developed for performance in the rigors of a rooftop environment.

Wind-Tested and Proven
LiveRoof was the first system to undergo full-scale wind uplift testing and to receive a wind-uplift rating.  The patent-pending WindDisc system provides additional protection against uplift in wind-challenged areas such as the corners and perimeter of tall buildings and in coastal, hurricane-prone regions.

RoofTop Proven™ Soil
The industry’s best engineered soil, expected to last indefinitely.

Flexibility  
LiveRoof modules can be custom cut to create natural looking green roofs with sweeping curves and full vegetation from parapet to parapet.  Other modular systems offer considerably less flexibility around drains, at edges, and cannot be used on curved applications without creating large gaps.

Scalable
The LiveRoof System is scalable to any size of project.  Our green roofs are just as good planted by the acre for warehouse-scale installation as it is for precisely-patterned boutique installations.  Our licensed growers are enthusiastic about every project, big or small, simple or complex.

No Air Gaps Between Modules
Uninterrupted continuum of soil eliminates air gaps for optimal R value, cooling value, and stormwater absorption.

No Coco-Fiber
No imported coconut fiber (coir) between modules or under soil means that water isn’t wicked away and there is true soil to soil contact.  Coir products generally hold their form for at least five years and may take up to 20 years to biodegrade.

Proper Roof Top Drainage
LiveRoof keeps the roof dry with drain channels that disperse water at 7.0 gallons per minute per linear foot.

Save on Maintenance Costs
With fully grown plants acting as a “living mulch,” LiveRoof dramatically cuts down the time and money traditionally required to maturate and maintain a green roof grown from plugs, tiles or cuttings.  Most LiveRoof systems can be maintained in just a few minutes when attended to every two weeks.

NOTE: The success and appearance of any modular or other green roof system is dependent upon numerous factors such as the designer’s specification, user’s adherence to specified maintenance, specific variations in plant type, planting density, and adherence to proper installation.
