How are the plants installed?
Depending on site conditions, plant selection, rates of coverage required and budget.
The first option is hydroseeding/planting; cutting material and seeds are spread on the prepared substrate, seeds germinate/cuttings root and the plant layer establishes over time. Option 2 is plug planting – young plants are manually installed into the substrate at the given density and the roof plant layer establishes over time. Option 3 is the sedum mat system – the plant layer is field grown to maturity, rolled up and transported to the prepared roof to be installed as an instant mature plant layer.
