APPLICATIONS / Green Roof and Horticulture Sustainability


The use of lightweight aggregate in site development has assisted designers in addressing the important issue of storm water management with on site treatment. Additionally, SLA helps to reduce heat island effects by amending soils to improve landscaping and through its use in both intensive and extensive roof top gardens. SLA’s unique features allow it to be used in a multitude of applications that contribute to the sustainability of the site and structure.

In site development, reduced water consumption, reduced stormwater runoff, improved on-site wastewater treatment and better plant quality provide for positive life cycle cost performance.
