GardenScapes from GAF is a garden roofing system that can provide up to 15 percent in energy savings alone. The federal government and many state and local governments have enacted tax benefits for property owners who install garden roofs.

The design starts with a choice of the company’s single-ply TPO or multiple-ply TriPosite XL roofing systems as the waterproofing layer. On top of the membrane is the company’s DuraGro 4-in-1 drainage foundation. Also included is a growing medium, each designed for specific geographic locations.

To improve the quality of the runoff water, the system includes a carbon-filtering compound. Finally, GardenScapes systems offer a choice of regional plant varieties. The systems are installed by GAF factory-certified installers.
