The choice of vegetation is a function of cost, time and the requirement for instant greening. The plant layer can be installed using the following methods:
A high quality carpet of sedum species is grown to maturity in our fields.
Rolled out directly on to the substrate, NatureMat provides an instant green roof with a minimum of 90% sedum plant cover.
Rooted young plants (plugs) provide greater species diversity. With over 50 hardy succulent species and a variety of wildflowers available (subject to growing seasons and times), a range of colours, shapes, heights etc can be achieved.
Can be combined with hydro-planting for a cost-effective, diverse plant cover.
Hydro-planting and seeding:
Cuttings and seeds are spread on the prepared substrate and mulch is applied to allow cuttings to root and seeds to germinate.
A cost-effective installation method that requires time for green cover to develop.
