Bee Pasture

  • Green roof with solar system and bee hive

The System Build-up ”Bee Pasture“ is an extensive green roof and one module of a “Biodiverse Green Roof” with a special focus on a long-lasting supply of  nectar and pollen. The vegetation layer can be realised with plug plants according to the  ZinCo plant list “Bee Pasture” and can also be established on partial roof areas. In dry periods, an additional irrigation is necessary to maintain the nectar and pollen production of the plants.
