High Line reconstruction

Long Island Compost is proud to be at the forefront of the green roof movement. A green roof is a vegetative layer grown on a rooftop that provides shade while reducing temperatures of the roof surface, the surrounding air, and the building itself. Green roofs also enhance storm-water management and water quality and can be installed on a wide range of structures, from industrial facilities to private residences. They can be as simple as a 2-inch covering of hardy groundcover or as complex as a fully accessible park complete with trees. For the building owner, installation of a green roof offers numerous tax advantages.

Long Island Compost provides the highest quality custom soil mixes that

meet all German FLL guidelines.

Soil blends created by Long Island Compost are used at highly visible green roof projects in Manhattan and throughout the Tri-State region.
