Woodygreen (The lightweight wooden planting base) With excellent water retention and a high absorption rate, this wooden planting base will not be deformed by water.
The lightweight planting base is ideal for creating greenery on building roofs and in factories. The material of this lightweight wooden planting base boasts exceptional water retention and absorption, and does not deform when saturated with water. It is manufactured by placing the planting base over a root barrier sheet, and you can simply lay the sod on top to create greenery.
Grass planted in this base will stop growing after it reaches a height of about 6 cm, making it easy to maintain. The unique water retention property of its wooden material also minimizes the maintenance required. By combining summer and winter turf, it is possible to create relaxing spaces that stay green throughout the entire year.

Special Properties 1. Anti-Reflective Property Reflection of direct sunlight and ultra-violet rays by materials such as concrete, asphalt, and tile have been cited as contributing factors to the heat island phenomenon, where temperatures rise in buildings and around office areas due to heat conduction. The reflected ultra-violet rays are also thought to contribute to the deterioration of structures. Sogen not only ensures that your roof will be waterproof; its turf and materials also absorb solar heat while reducing the amount of reflection and conduction, maintaining cooler temperatures in the process. These effects help to mitigate the effects of the heat island phenomenon.
2.Does not require soil in the base, making it a lightweight type suitable for rooftop usage The wooden plates used as a planting base for Sogen are formed from woodchips, giving them excellent permeability and water retention. The natural materials used in the planting base minimize any unwanted influence on the plants growing in the base, allowing them to thrive in a natural environment. Additionally, the planting base does not require soil, which means that there is no need to worry about dirt leaking out in rainy conditions. This rooftop greenery is also lightweight, making it easy to shift if the waterproofing of the roof needs to be redone.
3. Non-polluting and Environmentally Friendly Just like Weedlock products, Sogen's planting base uses an original binding agent primarily composed of thinned forest wood and sawdust. It clears the standards set by Article 35 of the Soil Contamination Countermeasures Act.
4. Environmental Recycling In order to protect forests, the wood used in Sogen comes from the periodic thinning of forests and similar sources. Using Sogen can help reduce wastage of wooden materials. It is an efficient use of timber discarded during the thinning process, and can help prevent collateral damage caused by driftwood and similar problems.
We, the RESOURCE FOREST INC., have started manufacturing the "Wood Molded Plate" in Fukuoka Prefecture.
This "Wood Molded Plate" is comprised of wood chips molded (plate shape) with a molding technique that utilizes wooden adhesive made mostly from thinned wood or wood scraps.
This Wood Molded Plate is a great leap forward in applications that utilize trees as resources, and the molded plate was created to subvert the common use of wood in the past.
Since this wooden molded plate is in the form of a plate, it can be processed in a number of ways according to diverse market applications such as for lithographic tiles or various block-shaped products, and a variety of products such as base material for plant cultivation are made possible with this molded plate.
Resource Forest manufactures wood products under the "recycling-oriented" concept. "Recycling-oriented" is a cycle that includes local production for local consumption, such as obtaining thinned wood and wood scraps from a region where our products will be used and purchasing raw materials from local merchants, and we offer local products for local use by considering how our products respond to the needs of the local community. In addition, since this product that can be reclaimed even after it is used, it can be remade and reused.
As paving material, floor material in a room, or base material for a rooftop garden, we will continue to push forward daily so we can offer a product that many people will be able to interact with.
