These measures include UV-resistant netting held in place by an interlocked perimeter paver system. The two-foot square perimeter pavers are interlocked by stainless steel edging to act as a continuous perimeter weight, pinning down the netting which covers the vegetated area. The netting extends across the green roof from one side to the other, and is tucked under the paver perimeter.
