The buildings roofs are perfect for intensive planting, especially if the roof construction allows this. The investment makes amends by reducing the heating costs and air conditioning, as well as extending the life of the roof.
The roof landscaping is increasingly being used and integrated in the landscape. It is also important and impacts the real estate market due to the attraction of additional flows of customers who are interested in unusual roof gardens. The roof gardens provide protection against penetration of noise inside the building.
Through them a creation of additional open space, used as a resting place is possible. The vegetal layer retains about 20% of the dust and any other harmful substances contained in the air. Contributing to the conservation of natural moisture and creating a healthy climate, a slow evaporation of rainwater from the soil on the roof is likely to happen. The plant species should be carefully selected for this purpose. The most important factor for them is to not be picky or hard to take care of.
The extensive landscaping is a great option, which requires the use of specially selected plant species that can survive in a thin layer of soil substrate and harsh weather conditions.
This is a system that is likely to least saddles the roof structure. The system protects the roof coverings from damage caused by UV radiation and mechanical issues. This increases the durability of the roof insulation and contributes to the cooling solutions (natural cooling equipment) even at very high ambient temperatures.
