With the hot weather and everyone beating a path up to the roof, here's a really nice way to keep it cool, green and growing. We can all help create the green city of the future with these guys.
Green Roof Blocks are 2' x 2' trays of drought resistant grass (and other plants) that don't need the expensive structural reinforcement/drainage/waterproofing that you often see. Starting at $15 per square foot, the blocks are made of aluminum and have a list of benefits...
- Increases roof life up to 200%
- Lowers heating cost
- Lowers cooling cost
- Drought resistant plants require no irrigation
- Provides excellent sound proofing
- Less strain on HVAC means longer equipment life
Available through Green Roofs in St. Louis.
