Mychorizzas improve water and nutrients collection, increasing plants resistance to drought.Form of vegetation The main element of the seed mixture is the herbage. Having different growth sizes, colors, space to grow, their appearance is in a continuous change. Sedums help to cover the area indeed, but because of their reduced height, they cannot dominate.Bauder Samenmischung KS plusContenttested seed mixture with sedum partsConsumptionca. 100 g/m²Delivery form2 kg, bag5 kg, bagItem number7460 00027460 0005After about 8 weeksThe KS plus mixture can have the optimal density, resistance to drought if it’s sowed in the Bauder substrate mixture.

It is good to know that the development of vegetation and the form of the green roof will be highly influenced by local weather conditions.After 12-16 weeksThe range of species included in the substrate ensures the development of plant community that will bring a great variety of colours and vegetation. Some of the species will disappear after the first year of growing. Of course, some local species could also migrate from the immediate environment, which increase biodiversity of the ecological roof, but must be removed if they are too invasive.In the second growing seasonMaintenance of vegetation depends on our expectations: how should look our green roof at maturity and what kind of biodiversity is expected. Our experts strongly recommend eliminating all local invasive plants before cultivation, and letting vegetation grow.
