Private Plaza – Manhattan, NY

Naturcycle often sees Intensive Green Roof media used as a good option for planters around New York City. Green Roof media provides consistent, long term success for planters. The material is weed seed free by design, excellent drainage and the right balance of nutrients and physical properties for success.   Our work with a blower truck installer on this project was important.

Naturcycle provided very dry, well blended, Intensive Green Roof Media with a slightly more soil like blend for planter success. The FLL Guidelines drive all Naturcycle media designs and this intensive, although more dense and sandier, still fell within those guidelines, but was made to best fit the project.
