Icopal Intensive Green Roofs Systems

BMI Canopia Intensive Green Roofs Systems

Intensive green roof systems are designed to be used as recreational spaces and often involve many features similar to traditional ground level gardens which can include paving, water features, lawns, shrubs and trees. These intensive 'roof gardens' are soil based multi layered systems and are so called because they are labour-intensive; requiring higher levels of irrigation, feeding, and other maintenance compared to their extensive counterparts.
