At the same time, the garden is a wonderful visual backdrop for the celebrating guests.

Good things are at our fingertips

Strictly speaking, there?s nothing more natural than growing the ingredients for your culinary delights directly on your own roof, because 100% fresh means 100% flavour. With its special Urban Farming system build-up, ZinCo provided precisely the right technology for growing the required crops. This build-up allows for the use of different types of drainage element, depending on the type of plant, for example, a tomato plant has different irrigation needs to perennial herbs. A total of 180 m

70 m

The first layer of the system build-up Urban Farming to be installed onto the root-resistant waterproofed roof for all plant beds is the Protection Mat ISM 50. In 13 of the plant beds this was followed by the drainage and water storage element Aquatece solution for the greater irrigation needs of annual vegetable plants. The principle is based on the distribution and storage of water in the cells of the Aquatece substrate directly in the root area. This is the crucial point, as Pierre Georgel, owner of Ecovegetal knows: ?Our years of experience with this capillary irrigation has shown us that the root system of plants with this system is three to five times more dense than is the case with conventional irrigation.?

In addition, 50% of the water supply is sufficient, for example, in comparison with irrigation from above with lawn sprinklers, where much of the water evaporates on the surface. Ecovegetal has developed a particularly light substrate specifically for growing vegetables. Using the company?s own silo truck, it was blown onto the roof, directly onto the plant beds, and distributed there. 20 m

Tailored to the needs

While perennial herbs and flowers are not as thirsty as some young vegetables, an efficient irrigation system is nonetheless required here during arid periods. Therefore, for the remaining plant beds, the drainage mat Fixodrain XD 20 is installed in combination with Aquafleece AF 300. The high capillary-effect Aquafleece consists of two layers. The dense fabric on the underside of the Aquafleece only lets the water drip through when the upper side of the fleece is totally saturated. The dripperlines attached to the fleece ensure that there is always sufficient water available for the plants during dry periods. Approximately 26 m

15 cm on average. Perfect conditions for everything to grow and thrive. This makes many a crow in the forest happy, as they come to pinch the odd treat.

So much more than a visual treat

Urban farming has so much more to offer than just culinary delights and great optics. This green roof also provides for the thermal protection of the roof waterproof membrane, noise reduction, rainwater retention and climate mitigation. It also goes without saying that it is good for biodiversity, that is to say, the variety of species and the conservation of fauna and flora. Last but not least, the roof terrace provides an eclectic space for memorable events. In any case, there is no shortage of creative ideas for a lofty reception, a floral wedding celebration or a night-time roof party in this wonderful setting.
