Less particulate matter, water retention to keep the sewage system from becoming overloaded, energy savings, a more comfortable living environment for both people and animals – these are just some examples of items that increasingly fill the (political) agenda. Recent research shows that more green space in urban areas helps to achieve all these matters.
Green on the roof
Urban areas often lack enough room for greenery, so greenery on roofs is an excellent solution to the problem. Sempergreen® has cultivated vegetation blankets for more than seventeen years now, gaining solid experience in greenery on roofs. Green roofs and extensive green roofs with vegetation blankets comprise a root resistant layer (or root resistant roofing), possibly a drainage layer and a substrate on which the vegetation grows.
Green roofs are sustainable
Green roofs are sustainable. For example, they retain approximately 45% water and with their insulating effect they save generous amounts of energy. And they have many more benefits. For more information, please refer to our detailed overview of benefits.
