Roof Garden with Aquafleece® irrigation – for Roofs with a Limited Load Bearing Capacity

Up to now, light-weight solutions were only possible in the field of extensive green roofs. However, with the system build-up “Roof Garden” with Aquafleece® the balancing act between “light-weight” and “intensive” can easily be mastered. It allows for visually appealing prestigious designs with lawn, perennials and small shrubs even on roofs with a low load bearing capacity. The system build-up is suitable for 0° roofs up to light-pitched roofs (up to approx. 8°).

Sophisticated irrigation concept

Irrigation occurs through special dripperlines that are fastened to the Aquafleece AF 300 at intervals of 50 cm using hook & loop tape and are supplied
with water through the Irrigation Manager, as required. Water consumption is comparatively low as the water is distributed through the Aquafleece® AF 300 and supplied to the plants from below.


* The weight values stated above are considered to be exclusive of vegetation, see Info Sheet "Green Roof Ballast".

** Lawn preferably as direct seeding with seedbed. Turf must be cultivated on sandy soil with a low level of humus. General tips for use: With a substrate depth of less than 20 cm, the lawn surface will most likely be wet for longer, even in summer.
