Our mission is to empower customers with systems, protocols and plants that make green roofs simple and lasting, accessible and serviceable.
We aim to be knowledgeable, innovative and uncommonly helpful as we foster a greener world.
Our vision is to restore the balance between green space (plants) and hard space (concrete, asphalt and rubber).
We aim to create a more hospitable planet by proclaiming the benefits of plants and helping our clients to successfully install and cultivate them (on rooftops).
LiveRoof provides natural function, as it unites the soil across a monolithic continuum. This allows for equal distribution of moisture, fertility, and beneficial organisms, and is the key to long term function of the green roof system.
Modules are subterranean, supporting natural beauty with a meadow-like aesthetic.
Hybrid Green Roof System
Our patented hybrid green roof design combines the best features of alternate green roof methods:
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.
