Vegetative Architectural Splendour - A Fytogreen Exclusive


Products used within the areas of planters were typically protection layers, 20mm deep drainage board, filter fleece, EPS filler blocks, Fytocell water retentive reservoir and a lightweight soil mix


Green roof from Icopal creates an award-winning urban splash

  • A stunning green roof from Icopal has helped a pioneering residential development in Manchester win a crop of awards… and one for itself at the same time.

    Products used within the areas of planters were typically protection layers, 20mm deep drainage board, filter fleece, EPS filler blocks, Fytocell water retentive reservoir and a lightweight soil mix.
    In the tree pit, 250mm of clean and rounded aggregate was layered to the underside of the soil level with each layer encapsulated in a filter fleece to ensure only clean and filtered water passed through the component parts and into the main drainage.
    Expert opinion
    The FRA judges commented: “This project is a good example of a single supplier working with a design team to achieve an appropriate finish to an interesting scheme. The result is an extremely aesthetically pleasing and innovative design with good technical solutions, complex detailing and an environmentally pleasing appearance.”
    Shedkm architect Nick Birch added: “We got Icopal involved quite early on and they worked through all the details with us. I went to the factory several times with the client and they were frequently on site. It was about as complex as you can get since there were a number of different materials and junctions and to resolve them needed a lot of discussion and back and forth with drawings.
    “The green roof was essential to the whole project really. The apartments that overlook the courtyard are probably the best to have and it is space that has been used for events like barbecues and drinks parties. It is standing up very well.”

Evaluation the use of Fytofoam on the water management, turfgrass germination and reestablishment in golf courses by; C. Guerrero; C. Antunes; and M. Pereira

International Journal of Energy and Environment
SUMMARY => According to the exposed results, fytofoam may confer an increase in soil water-holding capacity and less losses of water by percolation. These factors associated to an increase on air capacity, due to fytofoams' light density, may positive affect the germination process and faster turfgrass re- establishment.

Fytowall® herb garden

Homegrown herbs
logo Fytowall The lack of urban space and a serious water shortage has made the vegetable patch almost a thing of the past. An ingenious new product in Australia is the Fytowall® vertical garden that can easily turn a tiny outdoor space into a blooming oasis. The Fytowall® garden system is attached to a host wall with a frame that contains a series of panels. The plants chosen are those that would be suitable for the specific growing conditions and include herbs, perennials, annuals and even turf will happily grow in the soil-less growing medium. However, for those of us who are kitchen gardeners, it is the perfect way to grow fresh herbs such as trailing rosemary, thyme, chives, marjoram parsley and many mint varieties. The system is easy to water and feed, simply by the flick of a switch!
The Fytowall® vertical garden system can be freighted to anywhere in Australia. For more information, visit vertical gardens
