Green roof

Vegetation carrier

Pre-vegetated mat is an easy and simple way to roof greening

Xeroflor's pre-vegetated mat contains mature plants growing on a thin layer of growing medium supported by a carrier.

OUR SOLUTION

Xeroflor’s vegetation carriers are engineered for easy cultivation, harvest, transport and installation.

Smart design

Smart design

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.

Durability and integrity

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.

Cost-effectiveness

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.
