GREEN ROOF SYSTEMS
Hanging Gardens’ line of 400+ products has been a process of evolution. For nearly a decade, our team has scoured the earth to locate and develop the best value green infrastructure solutions for stormwater management. We continue this search for additional state of art technologies today. At present, we are assisting many municipalities with the existing technologies that we have already brought to market. Through the implementation of pilot projects we are redefining their green infrastructure programs and creating performance based standards in tandem. These solutions now provide them with tools to ensure that their investments are well run and maintained, while also reducing the burden of stormwater on aging sewer infrastructure.

With deeper growing media depths and the expanded plant palette, these systems offer much more design flexibility than extensive vegetated roofing. Hanging Gardens provides a complete array of semi-intensive vegetated roofing systems that offer a variety of aesthetic, stormwater retention requirements and budgetary options.

Intensive vegetated roofs are systems that provide the greatest variety of design flexibility through the deepest depths of growing media and the largest plant palette available of any vegetated roofing system type. The counter to intensive systems, is that they do require levels of maintenance and irrigation much greater than the extensive or semi-intensive options. In all actuality, it is very similar to the care needed for conventional landscaping.

Since the inception of Hanging Gardens, we have prided ourselves on education and providing choices to our clients. For the most part, Hanging Gardens does provide monolithic vegetated roofing systems, however as the most objective company in the vegetated roofing industry, we do also offer a modular or tray system as well. What we want to make clear is that like any of our products for stormwater management, we guide our clients to make the correct choice to meet their functional needs and budget. In regards to the later, more than product pricing is relative to determining what a final price for a project will be. Labor, crane, logistics, etc., are all factors when we help our clients determine what system is best for them. We take this into consideration every day when our team provides budgetary numbers to our clients; many times with multiple system offerings. We want you to make the right decision and we will direct you in the most objective manner possible for that to occur.
