OVERVIEW

The TerraExt Sedum Standard is a traditional, pre-grown system that uses a low maintenance sedum planting rolled on top of 10 cm of a proprietary blend of extensive engineered growing medium. Plants are grown on a “blanket” and harvested like sod. Provides excellent instant green with 85% foliar coverage upon installation. Helps reduce water evaporation, soil erosion and weed growth. The growing medium is contained by a filter fabric laid above the rest of the system’s under layers. Most components come in rolls that are easy to transport and install.

KEY FEATURES

Increased Biodiversity with BioBerm™ and Custom Plants

Next Level Stormwater Management’s BioBerm™  offers a seamless integration of extensive and intensive green roof features: pre-grown sedum groundcover and a custom planting option. Varying depths of engineered growing medium create topographic variation and increased biodiversity. Flexible sedum mat drapes over the undulating roofscape helping reduce water evaporation, soil erosion and weed growth. Innovative for providing an enhanced aesthetic in a custom manner, over areas that are highly visible or that do not have strict weight restriction.

Unique Design & Logo Creation

Next Level Stormwater Management’s systems easily adapt and conform to various roofs. The sedum blanket and premium base layers are fully customizable and can be easily cut to fit any shape and design.

CONVENTIONAL ROOFING ASSEMBLY (CRA):

The roof membrane is located on top of the insulation and therefore subject to destructive elements such as ultraviolet degradation, thermal cycling, hailstone impact, and other environmental hazards. The vegetated system is loose-laid on a CRA which helps to protect and extend the lifespan of the roofing membrane.

PROTECTED MEMBRANE ROOFING ASSEMBLY (PMR):

Insulation is located above the roofing membrane. A root barrier is installed in between the insulation and roofing membrane to promote open diffusion and ensure the top surface of the insulation has a ventilating air space. The roofing ballast above the insulation becomes part of the system and acts like the drainage layer. Contact us for other roofing assemblies.
