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, green roofs also improve a building’s environmental performance, thermal insulation and climate responsiveness.

Extensive Roof Gardens

 PROFILE DEPTH: 140mm - 200mm

From the new residential home to greening a garage roof or home extension – all the way to an extensive roof on a large commercial building – extensive roof gardens are the latest in the sustainability tool kit for acoustic and temperature insulation, water management and aesthetic beauty.

Extensive and semi-extensive roof gardens have a thin growing medium <200mm deep, planted with predominantly native vegetation.

Fytogreen designs roof gardens specifically to suit the site conditions, inclusive of weight and set down limitations.   All Fytogreens roof gardens are irrigated and designed for low maintenance.

PLEASE NOTE:  We do not supply the waterproof membranes, however we will direct you to the most suitable membrane systems.

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.

Fytogreen are proud to have supplied over 550,000m2 of roof gardens and roof garden media components throughout Australia .  We assists landscape architects, garden designers and supplies components to landscape contractors for intensive roof gardens.

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.
