Original Abstract

The long-term testing of the three kinds of green roofs with different retention ability is installed in AdMaS research facility of the Brno University of Technology. Installed vegetative roofs were designated for dissimilar application options with new developing vegetative-retention mats. The assessment of the vegetative development was required. The long-term EnviHut vegetative testing was preceded by short-term vegetative check of growth in Wädenswil testing field of the Züricher Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften. Results of the check confirmed growing potential of applicable vegetation. The long-term monitoring is focused on evaluation of the consolidation, damages caused by weather conditions and integrity of the vegetative surface. The main monitored testing inclination is 30°. Current results confirm general stability and prove functionality of the designed layer sets.
