Plant species

Wildflower Extensive Green Rooof

The species of plants are chosen to provide visual interest with a wide range of flowering periods and food sources to attract a diverse range of invertebrates.

Irrigation

Initial: Irrigation required immediately after installation for up to 8 - 12 months until fully established. Recommended irrigation period: 12 months. Pitched roofs retain less water and therefore permanent irrigation system should be considered.

Once established: Irrigation is only generally required during prolonged periods of hot dry weather.

Water source: A roof top source with a pressure of 2.5-3 bar and a flow rate of 60 L/min is recommended to connect a temporary system if required.
