Green Roofs & Roof Garden Installation in Sydney


Sustainable, Beautiful Green Roofs & Gardens


Green roofs (also known as roof gardens) enhance the visual impact of roof spaces by improving building insulation, regulating the indoor climate, and increasing the overall environmental impact of residential and commercial buildings.


Green roofs and green balconies are becoming an essential part of modern sustainable buildings. The benefits of living roof gardens are many and include improved sound insulation, reduced heating requirements, and reduced stormwater runoff.

About the Green Design Verti-gan System

Whereas a traditional green roof comprises of many layers including a waterproofing layer, a root barrier, and a drainage layer, plus of course the growing medium, Green Design’s modular Verti-gan system replaces many of these layers and is therefore far lighter and therefore much more scalable.

The system uses one 4mm thick impervious polypropylene water storage module, above which spacer and a planter module are placed, allowing for different size plants to be used in the green roof. Modules can be connected both vertical and horizontally so that large roofs can be planted, as well as smaller spaces such as balconies.

The roof garden is watered using an efficient tidal irrigation method, first flooding the modules and then draining them. Water can be recirculated. This eb and flow system ensures that no water is wasted, and storage can be provided for unused rainwater. The Verti-gan Green Roof is an innovative and cost-efficient modular roof garden system.

Green Design creates, installs and maintains stunning green roofs and living roof top gardens in Sydney and surrounds, and you are invited to contact the team for a free consultation.
