Roof Garden Engineering

Naturally Integrated with engineered natural components

Soil Profiles

In each climate zone on Earth we find distinguish Soil Profiles. These profiles are categorized in horizons where each horizon has specific properties which are essential for plants to grow sustainable and healthy.

On ground remote locations we engineer every horizon precisely to the needs of the intended vegetation with high performance materials. These environmentally friendly materials guarantee lush and healthy vegetation with no drop of water wasted and the lowest maintenance possible.

Functional layers of a typical Green Roof Technology system. The green roof engineer may combine or omit individual functional layers based on the requirements of the project. * for waterproofing that is not root-resistant or with water-ponding setup.

Extensive Green Roofs

In arid climate zones Extensive Green Roofs range from simple, lightweight, 5 – 6 inch deep systems supporting a blanket of succulents and desert herbs. Extensive Green Roofs can be upgraded with deeper assemblies, partially or entirely, for more biodiversity with meadow grasses and perennials. Carefully engineered layers with lightweight media provide for a strong plant growth and reduce water management.

Garden Ponds

Ponds can be seamless integrated into all types of Green Roofs in any shape and size. Any pond provides an eye-catching visual element, a place where birds can drink, a supportive habitat for fish, and a relaxing element for people.

Intensive Green Roofs

Supporting a large variety of plants including trees, Intensive Green Roofs open the world for landscaping on roofs. The roof can completely disappear under terraces, contrasting beds of colorful perennials, lush lawns, stylish shrubs, and shading trees. Typically the lightweight systems are deeper than 14 inch and equipped with a base-level irrigation where plants regulate water supply naturally. This is the most efficient irrigation in the industry and minimizes maintenance.

Accessibility

Especially on public accessible Green Roofs, on parking garages or entrance ways it might be important that emergency vehicles, tourist buses or residents are able to enter the location. Our pressure resistant environmentally friendly components precisely match with our Green Roof system and avoid over-engineering.
