Also known as a roof garden, an intensive roof provides benefits akin to a domestic garden or small urban park through a combination of soft and hard landscaping. With planting options including lawns, shrubs and even small trees, substrates tend to be greater in depth (i.e. 150 up to 1500 mm), heavier and have a higher organic content. Regular maintenance and irrigation can be expected.
