Acropack Irrigation

An automated irrigation system is a must for any type of sloped green roof. On a slope, the increased surface area and gravity accelerates water loss in the media much more quickly than on a flat green roof. For this reason, Vegetal i.D. recommends a permanent irrigation system to be in place to keep the green roof healthy. In addition, full vegetation coverage is important on a sloped green roof due to the increased risk of erosion. A permanent irrigation system will help to prevent vegetation loss during the dry months and keep high exposure sloping green roofs attractive throughout the growing season.
