Xeroflor's pre-vegetated mat contains mature plants growing on a thin layer of growing medium supported by a carrier.
Xeroflor’s vegetation carriers are engineered for easy cultivation, harvest, transport and installation.
Our vegetation carriers consist of a 3D entangled polymer filament coil, bonded to a filter or water retention fleece. This anchors the roots in stabilized growing medium, giving you an earlier harvest. The built-in overlap, to one side of the mat, lets adjacent mats be joined naturally by the growing roots.
Unlike natural coir mats, Xeroflor's vegetation carriers are synthetic and therefore dimensionally stable. They don’t decompose or fall apart during cultivation. They’re also easy to harvest and transport in rolls, and to unroll into place.
Growing pre-vegetated mats is easy and requires few specialized equipment. You can use seeds or cuttings from mature mats to start new ones, and you need considerably less growing medium than in trays. Also, the flexibility and low weight of the pre-vegetated mat makes harvesting simple and quick.
Our vegetation mats helped the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) build the world’s largest freestanding green roof at an airport – and the biggest in the city.
