Pre-Vegetated Tray Designed for Easy Transport and Installation

American Hydrotech introduces the InstaGreenGT-4 pre-vegetated trayAmerican Hydrotech introduces the InstaGreenGT-4 pre-vegetated tray, an expansion of the InstaGreen product line within the Garden Roof portfolio of assemblies. The GT-4 tray is one option for a storm water management plan by providing valuable green space as a best management practice on roofs to handle the first rains. It consolidates all growing media, drainage and vegetation in one convenient package for easy transport and installation by roofing professionals and landscape contractors.

According to the manufacturer, the tray is composed of 100 percent fully recycled content and its 12-inch-by-24-inch high performance format can hold up to 4 inches of media for optimum plant growth. It has a unique reservoir base design for increased water capacity and sustained plant growth in times of drought and perforated side walls to promote inter-tray root growth and water transfer. Integral connector clips are used to form a unified, seamless, vegetated surface and resist wind uplift forces. 

Vegetation options for the InstaGreen GT-4 tray are a standard sedum species blend designed to accommodate the rooftop conditions. A range of perennials can also be added to provide increased color, texture and habitat features for the pre-vegetated roof.
