Intensive Green Roofs

  • Ornamental leeks in front of a large table and chairs
    Landscaped roofs offer additional space for numerous uses

Intensive Rooftop Landscaping

Intensive green roofs can most easily be compared to building a garden on a roof. They are usually multifunctional and accessible. They require more weight and a deeper system build-up. The maintenance is regular and depends on the landscape design and the chosen plant material. Anything is possible from lawns, perennials, shrubs, trees including other landscape options such as ponds, pergolas and patios.

Characteristics

  • Ornamental lawn, summer flowers, demanding shrubs, bushes and trees
  • Regular maintenance required
  • Build-up height depending on plant selection
  • Weight >150 kg/m²
