MobiRoof consists of a system of sedum cassettes which simply click into each other, creating an extensive green roof system. Ideal as a green roof for gazebos, garages, carports and storage areas, the system is also perfect for bus shelters, bicycle sheds, flat roofs in schools, companies and other outdoor structures. The unique lightweight cassette system is planted with various types of sedum plants and has a special substrate for rainwater drainage and storage.
