With all this green building design the greening is going on inside, with planter boxes, step downs and more. Outside of buildings by landscapers greening walls, retaining walls …
These types of features mean that it’s, not sufficient to just paint the wall.
Paints are water resistant not waterproof which will result in water entering the wall.
Architectural designers are including more green in their designs adding features such as rock ponds, retaining walls, swimming pools, planter boxes and more.
It has never been more
important to ensure that structures are made waterproof.
Waterproofing and protection of all building structures is a must. Membranes and coating should
never allow the penetration of water or plant roots to enter the built landscaping structures. By keeping your landscaping structures dry you
increase longevity and reduce maintenance costs over the life of the structure

The trend to increase the number of green building designs increase the need for better waterproof structures that have protective barriers for the building structure to withstands soils, increased water content, exposure of membranes to tree roots to say the least.
