The popularity of green roofs is gradually coming in our country. For a long time, this method of decoration was considered absolutely not applicable to the harsh Russian climate. Despite this, the designers were able to prove that all ideas are quite realizable, despite the long winters and cold. The main thing is to choose the right vegetation.
In addition to the aesthetic task, a green roof carries other functions. This is an excellent heat insulator, capable of not only containing heat and cold, but also increasing humidity. Plants are able to collect dust and thereby purify the air. Very often, abundant vegetation on the roof allows you to create an excellent recreation area there. Consider which plants take root well on the roofs in our climate and allow you to effectively green any surface.
Gardening is divided into three types: extensive, intensive just intense. Their difference is the appearance, weight and functionality.
Intensive includes the implementation of the idea of a full-fledged garden, through which you can stroll and even have a tea party. Plants in this embodiment are located at different levels and have a wide selection. The option is quite spectacular, but very expensive and troublesome.
Just intense - this is planting various herbs and bushes that require a small layer of substrate. In this case, the choice of plants will be much more modest. This also applies to the capabilities of the designer, which will be limited in imagination.
Extensive is considered a special type. With this option, the roof is a canvas for the implementation of various artistic ideas. In most cases, access to it is limited, since almost the entire surface of the roof is planted with succulents, cereals, mosses and herbs. Most often, a hardy and tenacious flora is preferred. This option of landscaping is considered to be the most budgetary and unpretentious.
Speaking about the difficulties of a green roof, it is worth noting that the selection of vegetation should be carried out very carefully. In the pursuit of beauty, many do not take into account that tall plants do not tolerate abundant winds. It should always be remembered that the vegetation on the roof should be adapted to cold wintering and staying for a long time without abundant organic matter and soil recharge.
Roof landscaping - the solution is fresh and original. It is quite simple to implement and does not require large expenses. The main thing is that the selected vegetation has endurance and can tolerate the cold seasons.
