Resin Bound Roof Gardens
Resin bound roof gardens are innovative and sustainable solutions that involve creating green spaces on rooftops using a resin bound surfacing system. This roof garden combines traditional rooftop gardens’ benefits with the durability and aesthetic appeal of resin bound surfaces. Here are some key features and benefits of resin bound roof gardens:
Surface Composition: Resin bound surfaces contain natural aggregates (such as crushed stone, gravel, or recycled materials) and a clear UV-stable resin. This creates a durable, permeable, smooth surface suitable for pedestrian and vehicular use.
Green Space Creation: Resin bound roof gardens transform flat or sloping rooftops into vibrant green spaces. These gardens can be designed with a variety of plantings, including grass, shrubs, flowers, and even small trees, depending on the structural capacity of the roof.Enquire
Benefits of Resin Bound Roof Garden
Stormwater Management: One of the significant advantages of resin bound roof gardens is their ability to manage stormwater effectively. The permeable nature of the resin bound surface allows rainwater to drain through the system, reducing the risk of flooding and minimising the load on urban drainage systems.
Thermal Benefits: Roof gardens, in general, provide excellent thermal insulation, reducing heat gain during the summer and heat loss during the winter. They help to regulate indoor temperatures, leading to energy savings and a more comfortable living or working environment.
Noise Reduction: The combination of plants and the resin bound surface helps to absorb and reduce noise pollution. The vegetation acts as a natural sound barrier, making resin bound roof gardens particularly beneficial for buildings located in noisy urban areas.Enquire
More Benefits of Resin Bound Roof Gardens
Environmental Benefits: Resin bound roof gardens contribute to environmental sustainability by mitigating the urban heat island effect, enhancing biodiversity, and improving air quality. They also provide habitat opportunities for birds, bees, and insects in urban settings.
Aesthetic Appeal: Resin bound surfaces offer a smooth and visually appealing finish, enhancing the roof garden’s overall look and feel. The versatility of resin bound systems allows for various design possibilities, including patterns, colours, and decorative features.
Easy Maintenance: Resin bound roof gardens generally require minimal maintenance. Routine tasks may include watering, weeding, and occasional pruning to ensure the health and vitality of the plants. The resin bound surface is relatively low-maintenance and can be cleaned easily with regular sweeping or pressure washing.Enquire
