Sustainable living roofs for healthy, ecologically responsible buildings.
A roof garden or “green roof” is a flat or pitched roof surface that is planted using a growing medium over a waterproof membrane.
Not only does a flourishing roof garden enhance the overall aesthetic, they also improve a building’s environmental performance, thermal insulation and climate responsiveness.
Fytogreen specialises in;
- Extensive and Semi-Extensive Roof Gardens - PROFILE DEPTH: 140mm - 200mm
Extensive and semi-extensive roof gardens have a thin growing medium <200mm deep, planted with predominantly native vegetation.
- Intensive Roof Gardens, Podium and Planter Boxes - PROFILE DEPTH: 200mm -1500mm +
Intensive roof gardens are typically heavier than extensive gardens, with a garden profile depth of 200-1500mm+ supporting substantial vegetation, shrubs and trees – a landscaped space for people to use for recreation, gardens or a natural habitat.
- Sloped Roof Gardens
Fytogreen support the use of ‘The Geoweb® Cellular Confinement System’s for any roof garden with a slope above 15 degrees. This unique design provides resistance to sliding for thin soil profiles on steep slopes, which ultimately allows for the construction of a previously unfeasible, living green roof up to a 45° slope. The design is ratified by Geofabrics Australia.
