Extensive Geen Roof "Sedum Carpet"

The “Sedum Carpet” is a standard build-up for extensive Green Roofs. It is a shallow and lightweight Green Roof type with ground-covering plants, that requires little maintenance.

Floradrain® FD 25-E is the appropriate drainage and waterstorage element for this system. It has the necessary compressive strength, a low profile height, little weight and is walkable. Proven Sedum species, in combination with the adapted growing medium and system build-up, guarantee a durable Green Roof. The growing medium “Zincoblend E” is particularly suitable for extensive Green Roofs as well as the plant community “Sedum Carpet”, containing various low-growing Sedum species that are wind and frost-resistant.

The main blooming time is early summer with yellow, red and white flowers dominating. During the year, “Sedum Carpet” is represented in various shades of green. Red shades show particularly in autumn and are a nice change in the Green Roof´s appearance.
