Blue Green Roof Research
A 2022 research study by world-renowned green roof researcher, Brad Rowe, finds the RoofBlue RETAIN system (combined with either LiveRoof Standard or LiveRoof Lite modules) increases stormwater retention by over 25%. Read our official white paper on RoofBlue RETAIN’s effectiveness in enhancing plant growth and reducing irrigation requirements on a green roof.
LiveRoof plastic modules, concrete pavers, aluminum edging, and other accessories are manufactured in the United States. LiveRoof brand engineered green roof soils are blended by local soil formulators and planted by local Licensed Growers in the USA and Canada.
We breed and select the most outstanding plants, and subject them to rigorous rooftop trials and broadscale hardiness testing. We proudly offer dozens of exclusive, RoofTop Proven™ plant selections specifically developed for performance on green roofs.
To support design professionals, we maintain an architecture and engineering section on this website, as well as a printed Idea Guide & Designer’s Checklist. These resources are kept current with the knowledge we have obtained through our supply of thousands of green roofs totaling millions of square feet.
Green roofs offer many benefits to both building owners and the communities in which they’re situated. With LiveRoof, you get an instant green roof, for optimized benefits from the day of installation.
