Planting a green roof in situ with cuttings or plug plants, and then caring for it, can be satisfying and affordable.
Xeroflor offers a full range of components to be put together for your plant-in-place green roof projects.
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.
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.
