The Execution of a Green Roof Design. Analysis, Assessment, Concept and Design. Wissenschaftliche Studie aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Landschaftsarchitektur, Landespflege, Gartenbau, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: This paper presents a green roof design where the client requires a specially engineered rooftop that supports plant life, measuring 37m by 44m. They requested a rooftop with a thin layer of low-growing, herbaceous plants that require low maintenance, thus an extensive green roof. The roof had to be a multi-layered build up consisting of a protection fleece layer and a recycled filter fleece under a loose blend of organic and mineral substrate under a planted sedum vegetation. Given the Australian climate, the plants should be densely spaced and able to live in meager soil and also survive exposure to cold, heat, and wind.
