Biodiverse Systems

BIO-DIVERSE ROOFS CONSIST OF A GROWING SUBSTRATE LAID IN VARYING DEPTHS TO ENCOURAGE A MULTITUDE OF DIFFERENT PLANT SPECIES TO GROW. THESE ROOFS CAN BE PLANTED OR LEFT TO DEVELOP NATURALLY OVER TIME AS LOCAL SEEDS ARE EITHER BLOWN OR DROPPED ONTO THE ROOF BY BIRDS. IN ADDITION, WE CAN INCLUDE WOODPILES, STONES AND BOULDERS, BIRD BOXES, BAT BOXES AND BUG HOTELS TO CREATE HABITATS ENCOURAGING AS MUCH WILDLIFE AS POSSIBLE TO UTILISE THE SPACE. AN EVAGREEN ROOF IS OFTEN THE BEST OPPORTUNITY PRESENTED TO ARCHITECTS AND CONTRACTORS TO REPLICATE AND ENHANCE THE BIODIVERSITY THAT WOULD BE ON-SITE IN THE ABSENCE OF DEVELOPMENT.

Bio-diverse roofs consist of a growing substrate laid in varying depths to encourage a multitude of different plant species to grow. These roofs can be planted or left to develop naturally over time as local seeds are either blown or dropped onto the roof by birds. In addition, we can include woodpiles, stones and boulders, bird boxes, bat boxes and bug hotels to create habitats encouraging as much wildlife as possible to utilise the space. An EvaGreen roof is often the best opportunity presented to architects and contractors to replicate and enhance the biodiversity that would be on-site in the absence of development.
