Intensive Roof Terrace Garden

Another term for these green roofs is “Rooftop Garden.”

Vegetable and herb gardens fit in well on these rooftops and to a degree their care is slightly easier than ground level gardens since with the use of Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA) no pests and weeds find their way to the these plantations. These green roofs tend to stay more attractive in dry weather due to excellent thermal insulation property of Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA)  and are very often less irrigated.
