Green roofing is the process of installing a small ecosystem on the roof of a building. Each green roof installation is unique. Some green roofs provide community gardens while others provide a calm break for employees from their desk jobs. A green roof may prove to be an asset both environmentally and economically and here’s why:
Environmental Benefit. Green roofing provides an improvement in air quality to the surrounding area—filtering out smog and decreasing greenhouse gases trapped in the atmosphere. It also provides insulation to the build, making the building more energy-efficient, fire retardant, and less noisy. Green roofing also helps cities maintain stormwater management because they absorb a large amount of precipitation—keeping excess water out of our drains. Think of a green roof as being an elevated garden. Green roofs provide beautiful landscapes in concrete jungles to be enjoyed as commercial businesses or recreational spaces.
Economic Benefit. As aforementioned, green roofs have been shown to cause a decrease in building energy demands. Our process of green roofing is also time-efficient, again saving you money on labor and installation. In some cities, you may also be able to obtain a tax refund for your green roof or wall installation.
Great for outdoor projects, the Terraseeding® infuses additives to the ground covering such as soil, mulch, and compost through a blowing process. This infusion protects seeds and allows them a better chance of establishment than traditional seeding. Blowing is often accomplished through our blower trucks for rapid results.
Here are some of the benefits of Terraseeding® with Cherokee Materials:
Erosion Control. Because Terraseeding® is infused more than traditional seeding, it allows for increased germination and soil quality. This will allow an increase in soil quality and longevity.
Variety. Terraseeding® is customizable. We can tailor your Terreseeding needs to your project whether it be an erosion control blanket, a new lawn, or have a specific variety of grasses that you prefer, we are able to accommodate you.
Time Efficiency. The process of Terraseeding® with a blower truck takes significantly less time than other methods. This allows us to get the job done quicker, saving you on labor costs during installation and the cost of lawn care services in the future.
