XF Grow - the starting point of lightweight, flexible, highperforming pre-vegetated mats for green roofs.
High performing and quick to establish, systems using pre-vegetated methods are much more popular than traditional ‘plant-in-place’ systems. According to the GRHC's 2015 survey, 85% of North American green roofs use them.
XF Grow's vegetation carriers have a 3D entangled polymer filament coil network bonded to a filter or fleece fabric. The entangled coils create excellent root anchorage and prevent soil erosion. The fabric's high tensile strength ensures integrity of the pre-vegetated mats while installed on sloped roofs.
XF Grow's vegetation carriers are synthetic and therefore strong and dimensionally stable. Unlike coconut coir mats, they don’t decompose or fall apart during cultivation or installation. The resulting pre-vegetated mats are easy to harvest in the field, transport in vehicles and install on the job site.
You don’t need fertile land or specialized equipment to cultivate XF Grow's vegetation carriers. You can use seeds or cuttings from mature sedum mats to start new ones, and require only 1-2cm (0.4-0.8in) of growing medium compared to 10-20cm (4-8in) for trays. Harvesting is quick and simple, too.
Lightweight and flexible for easy handling during cultivation, harvest, delivery and installation.
Reinforces vegetative growth and stabilises soil.
Short growth cycle means quicker turn around and higher annual profitability.
Extensive green roofs weigh less, need little or no maintenance, help save energy and water, and support bio-diversity.
Stabilises green roofs – no need for hydromulch or wind netting, and you have flowers and foliage all year round.
Vegetation carriers support seedlings, stabilise the soil and minimise erosion, and you can harvest them in rolls.
Our green roof system helped beautify New York’s Empire State Building, while saving energy and adding value.
