SERVICES & PRODUCTS
Greensulate was one of the first U.S. companies to begin reviving lifeless roofs and asphalt surfaces into habitats, gardens, and green spaces that provide community-wide benefits. We are a nationwide company with Green Roof Professionals on both coasts. We have developed expertise in how to tailor green infrastructure solutions to regional considerations. We provide a full range of services from design/consult to installation to long-term maintenance. We are agnostic on products we use. And, just recently we initiated new products such as growing mediums and hydroponic solutions tailored to the local environment.
Greensulate’s Design Consult Services
Greensulate has designed green roofs ranging from a 500 sf Intensive Garden to a series of Extensive Green Roofs totaling over a million sf. We have designed bioswales, rainwater capturing, gray water systems, green walls, vertical indoor gardens and roof top urban gardens. We base our design on the architect’s and building owner’s goals, regional factors like load bearing regulations and rainfall totals, and our extensive experience in installing and maintaining green roofs over time. Learn more about our Design Consult services.
Depending on the design and client goals, Greensulate can install “instant green” extensive green roofs, such as the 14,000 sf Extensive Green Roof on the Fashion Institute of Technology building in downtown Manhattan, which went from dead to living over a one-week period. Other green roofs and green infrastructure project can take weeks or months to complete.

Greensulate’s Water Management Services
Water management is at the core of all Greensulate projects. First, during the design phase, Greensulate considers rainwater harvesting and storage, if desired, drainage from the roof or wall, plant selection and soil amendments that can reduce water needs, and the irrigation or watering systems that need to be installed. Next, during installation Greensulate focuses on waterproofing the roof or wall, and installing the irrigation system or hose bibs, if required by green roof or green wall type, project location and plant selection. After installation, a planted green roof will absorb and filter stormwater for decades. And, finally during maintenance, Greensulate oversees watering the green roof and walls and repairs, if needed, in any irrigation systems. Learn more about our Water Management Services.
