System structures green ground cover

Every outdoor area is different. This is why the structure of direct-green ground cover differs per project. Variables such as the underlying soil and pitch determine the best solution for your project. We have prepared a convenient overview of the most frequently used system structures for you. If you would like to receive product recommendations tailored to your needs, please visit our online advice centre where you will receive the correct structure tailored to the specifications of your project. 

System structures

Draining soil layer 0-10°

A draining soil such as sand is extremely suitable for applying green soil cover. The system structure for a surface with pitch from 0 to 10° consists of a layer of extensive substrate topped with the Sempergreen Sedum-mix blanket.


Non-draining soil layer 0-10°

When using a Sedum-mix blanket on a non-draining soil - such as clay or stone - with a pitch of 0 to 10 degrees, an additional drainage layer is necessary in the structure. This additional layer guarantees that your ground cover will remain green throughout the year.


Slope gradient 10-45°
Slopes such as embankments, parks, and roundabouts are ideal applications for our pre-cultivated ground cover. The Sempergreen Sedum-mix blanket type T is especially suitable for sloping surfaces up to 45 degrees. We recommend using securing pins to keep the blankets in place.
