Extensive Green Roof "Ornamental Sedum"

Extensive Green Roofs call for plant communities that can easily deal with sun, wind and drought. The system build-up “Ornamental Sedum” leads to an extensive Green Roof with sophisticated design and individual character. The growing medium has a minimum depth of 2.75 in and the vegetation consists of various species which provide a long blooming period and set different accents throughout the vegetation period.

Water and nutrients are mostly supplied through natural processes. Rainfall collects in the Floradrain® storage cells and roots are provided with water through diffusion. Water is also stored in the protection mat. Excess water is drained away by the Floradrain® element.

Sedum species and other perennials are primarily used as a ground cover. The vegetation of “Ornamental Sedum” is obtained by root ball plants. Hand-planting ensures that the design agrees with the landscaping drawings.
