Eco-Roofs’ parent company is Twixwood Nursery with over 40 years of horticulture experience. We came into the green roof business by supplying plants for many of the earliest green roofs. With the Nursery experience and backing we have the ability as well as the knowledge to grown and provide most any plant for your green roof however we have found a standard mix that will provide you with the best long term survivability through both harsh winters and dry summers with very little maintenance while also providing a pleasing variety of plant textures, heights and foliage and flower colors.
We have about a dozen varieties that we suggest and we recommend choosing at least 6-8 of them to allow for micro climate variations on your roof. We recommend the use of a 2-3” plug placed a maximum of 6” on center. Other options can work with the proper training and application including the use of cuttings, larger spacings, etc. Proper maintenance following the installation is the most critical and will include regular watering, weeding, possibly fertilizing and wind/erosion protection. More information specific to your application can be provided if needed.
