Maintenance Matters

Maintenance is key to keeping our green roofs healthy and sustainable. Although we do boast of being low maintenance, it doesn’t mean we do not need to inspect and do routine maintenance runs. The frequency of these inspections and maintenance is highly dependent on each green roof.

In JB, we have kept tabs on our very first green roof implemented in the city. Above is a picture taken during a routine maintenance run. Keeping our green roofs healthy is our priority.

After working with us to establish a couple of Gaiamat green roofs, we are proud to be featured in Think City’s facebook post. It is in fact our honor to be associated with Think City, who have been in the urban rejuvenation scene for awhile, namely in Penang, Kuala Lumpur and now Johor Bahru. We at Belalang commend their efforts to preserve local heritage while striving to make urbanscapes more liveable.
