Rock Wool Slabs are Ideal for Creating Rooftop Vegetable Gardens
Are you a restaurateur or an apartment dweller with a passion for fresh vegetables? If so, you may want to consider creating a rooftop vegetable garden with the aid of rock wool slabs. Rock wool slabs are ideal for such applications for several reasons.
For starters, rock wool slabs are considered to be inert, insect resistant, mold resistant, reusable and non-absorbent. Take our rock wool slabs for example. They are traditionally 600 mm wide and 1200 mm long. However, you can easily cut them to fit the size of your rooftop garden beds. Each one is made of a blend of shot and organic compounds that sport a hydropobicity greater than 98%.
As such, rooftop gardeners that choose to use them will be able to quickly adjust their vegetable plants’ rooting environments effectively and efficiently. This is an exceptionally important benefit for those that want to speed up or slow down the vegetables’ life cycle.
In addition, none of the water or liquid nutrients added to the rooftop garden beds will be wasted due to absorption. Thus, depending on the crop, gardening expenses are apt to be minimal. The rock wool slab’s lack of absorbency also understandably reduces the need to worry about seasonal watering restrictions or losing one’s vegetables to severe drought conditions.
Of course they are not the only reasons why our rock wool slabs are perfect for rooftop gardening applications. Because the slabs take the place of potting soil and are insect resistant, there is no need to engage in sterilization or pesticide related tasks. Subsequently, any vegetables produced using our rock wool slabs may be deemed organic. We should also mention that the rock wool slabs and the manufacturing methods used to create them are eco-friendly too.
