Fytogreen was commissioned to install 10 individual extensive roof gardens, totalling 965m2, spread over 4 levels at the New Bendigo Hospital site. The planting design was completed in conjunction with Oculus to reflect the row cropping history of the region using 8,672 plants and 33 different species.
Fytogreen also installed 4,388m2 of stone ballast, spread over 5 roof levels. A combination of a white stone and tumbled grey bluestone was used to complete the design. Fytogreen stainless steel L- profile was used to contain the ballast and green roof from the exposed box gutter and the majority of the installation was on kingspan panels.
