Is it possible to have a planted roof? Print

Yes of course. It is a common perception in South Africa that planted roofs don’t work, because you can’t seal them properly. This is not true. Planted roofs have been around for along time already in Europe and elsewhere. There are also numerous successful examples in South Africa. The latest planted roof design by Eco Design Architects is the award winning Gatehouse building at the Nieuwoudtville Caravan Site.
