The Grounds of Alexandria, a beautiful eclectic eco café in NSW, boasts 2 colourful Fytogreen roof gardens with a combined area of 170m2, each roof has a 170mm profile. The roof garden adds a rustic charm to the outdoor restaurant eating space.
To combat the 30 degree slope of the roof, a stabilizing geoweb system was used to ensure the soil components did not slide down the roof pitch. Fytogreen used a range of ground covers grasses and flowering plants; in total 16 species were used which will provide a range of colours and textures all year round.
