Lightweight Soils

Semi-intensive Lightweight Topsoil

If your project includes green roofs, podium landscapes or green walls, you will require a lightweight soil or green roof substrate with low porosity and a quality blend of sand, compost and aggregate that suits.

Supplied to an average bulk density of 1.1 Mg/m3 and an average pH of 7.6 or a blend to meet your specification, this substrate is appropriate for green roof planting schemes that focus on slow-growing and stress-tolerant plants due its lower organic content than the Intensive Lightweight Roof Garden Substrate.
