Roof Gardens, Vertical Gardens

Roof GardensRoof and vertical gardening is becoming more attractive in South Africa for the following reasons:

  • Energy costs are rising
  • A "green" revolution is occurring in both public and private sectors
  • New legislation is being adopted in terms of energy efficiency and responsible water usage at all levels of Government
  • Meets mandate of "Triple-Bottom Line"


Incorporating a roof and/or vertical gardens to your building has the following benefits:

  • Provides a cooling and insulating effect on the building - this translates into substantial energy savings. Reduces your carbon footprint.
  • Transforms a previously unused space into a usable habitat for people and nature. Helps make the city greener, reduces the urban heat island effect and manages runoff
  • Contributes visually and aesthetically to the built environment - improves quality of life
  • Reduces UV damage to waterproofing and increases building lifespan


Both our key products, Leca® and Supaflora®, have been used for decades internationally as the lightweight substrate of choice.
