The following Plaisted’s Garden Mixes are available for your use, or we can custom blend a mix for your application:

ROOFTOP GARDEN MIXES

We blend 3 type of rooftop materials. Depths vary depending on what types of plant materials are going to be used and what the roof weight-load is designed to handle:

  • Extensive mixes are generally used at a 3″ to 6″ depth
  • Intensive mixes are generally 6″ to 12″ or more in depth
  • Turf mixes are 6″ to 12″

RAIN GARDEN PEAT MIXES

Excellent drainage properties—Meets MPCA Stormwater Manual Guidelines
A homogeneous blend of washed clean construction sand (70 to 90%) and sphagnum peat (10 to 30%). These mixes effectively collect water from previous and impervious surfaces while filtering out sediment and pollutants. Other benefits: Stores water for the short term to be used by plants and permits clean water to infiltrate the soil and subsoil slowly, thus recharging the ground water. See our literature sheet


RAIN GARDEN COMPOST MIXES

A homogeneous blend of washed clean construction sand (70 to 90%) and organic leaf compost (10-30%). These mixes effectively collect water from previous and impervious surfaces while filtering out sediment and pollutants. Other benefits: Stores water for the short term to be used by plants, and permits clean water to infiltrate the soil and subsoil slowly, thus recharging the ground water.
