Traditional, Growing Medium-Based System
The Terra Ext Sedum Standard is a traditional system that is loose laid on top of an extensive blend of engineered growing medium. The pre-grown sedum blanket consists of 10-12 succulent species and provides excellent instant green upon installation. The sedum blanket helps reduce water evaporation, soil erosion and weed growth. Vegetated mats are locally grown outdoors until mature, including one winter season to ensure they are acclimatized to seasonal conditions. Sourcing local products ensures best sustainability and economic practices, reduces transportation distances and costs, reduces green house gas emissions and helps qualify for additional regional LEED points.
Most components come in rolls that are easy and more economical to transport and install.
The Terra Ext has been wind tested to CAN/CSA A123.24 – the world’s first vegetated wind uplift test method.
