Green roof

Plant-in-place systems

the traditional way of roof greening

Planting a green roof in situ with cuttings or plug plants, and then caring for it, can be satisfying and affordable.

OUR SOLUTION

Xeroflor offers a full range of components to be put together for your plant-in-place green roof projects.

Drainage and root barrier sheeting

Drainage and root barrier sheeting

Our drainage mats and root barrier sheeting are standard requirements for any green roof, and you can buy these separately. We offer a wide range of drainage products to meet all green roof requirements. If you need help to choose the right drainage product for your roof, we are very happy to advise you.

Water retention layer

We offer several options to slow down and retain water to support plant growth and manage runoff. This could be a needle-punch non-woven fleece, of recycled synthetic and cotton fibres, or a mineral wool mat. Both capture water and store nutrients, and are lightweight and easy to cut.

Root reinforcement and erosion control

Root reinforcement and erosion control

Exposed growing medium is susceptible to wind/water erosion before plant roots can fully established on plant-in-place systems. You can add our 3D entangled polymer filament mat to stabilize growing medium and provide anchorage points for plant roots, preventing erosion by wind and rain.
