Green roofs have become a standard component for many projects seeking LEED certification. They create many measurable benefits, such as storm water management, extension of roof life, mediation of roof temperature extremes, and re-creation of green space. In addition, green roofs provide opportunities for positive social impacts that are difficult to measure, such as creation of calming, serene places for inhabitants, which in turn can create improved moods and health, increased productivity, and inspiration.

Specifically regarding the LiveRoof® Hybrid Green Roof System, it is a hybrid system that interconnects soil to create a naturally functioning green roof. When all factors are considered (acquisition + installation + maturation + maintenance + longevity), it has the highest value and best ROI of all green roof systems.

The LiveRoof® System gives designers optimal design flexibility and creativity without the risk, helping them to achieve their project's design goals and functions. LiveRoo®f has design tools available, such as BIM components, Spec Writer, and a national network of experienced growers that are available to answer region-specific questions. The LiveRoof® System has patented and exclusive plant varieties not available to other green roof systems.
