Intensive Roof Gardens
The intensive profile is deeper, between 200-1200 mm. This allows for the full diversity of plants from turf to trees to be used. Intensive roof gardens are generally used as recreational spaces. These roof gardens place a large amount of weight on a building roof and require regular maintenance as per a normal garden.
