Extensive Wildflower Green Roof Systems

Wildflower Extensive Green Roof Systems

Wildflower extensive green roofs are intended to generally provide a habitat to create a wider bio-diversity of flora and fauna compared to a traditional sedum green roof.

The system can be managed more heavily to produce a controlled “wildflower meadow” type environment. Alternatively, less management input may lead to the development of vegetation which progresses naturally relating to the prevailing conditions. Often wildflowers, grasses and sedums are the main species of vegetation designed to thrive within such systems.

 

Icopal ST Wildflower Mat System

Wildflower-Mat-Biodiverse-Meadow-SystemA lightweight extensive green roof system utilising a pre-grown vegetation mat sown with a mix of thirty eight wildflower and grass species.

Meadow systems are designed to create the look of a terrestrial wildflower meadow and the use of a pre-grown mat creates a green planting scheme with instant impact. The vegetation mat is installed on a shallow depth of specially formulated free-draining substrate and drainage board.
