STRI is an official green roof testing house for The GRO Green Roof Code.
Our research team offer green roof substrate testing according to standards set by GRO and German FLL Guidelines. In addition, we also help clients to develop bespoke substrate mixes which are fully compliant with GRO and FLL guidelines.
Standard substrate tests include:
|Density||Plant available nutrients||Biological compatibility|
|Porosity||Total nutrients||Germination success|
|Organic matter content||Electrical conductivity||Drought tolerance|
|Particle size distribution||Heavy metal presence|
|Water holding capacity|
Other substrate tests are available on request.
