Standard product features

Vegetation:

- Bauder SB Substrate Sedum Blanket System

Bauder SB Substrate Sedum Blanket System is a mature vegetation blanket, sown with a broad variety of Sedum. It is intended for application directly over levelled Bauder FLL compliant, Extensive Substrate (see Product Data Sheet) as the underlying growing medium. The product is designed to enable rapid rooting to the substrate to speed up establishment times.

The SB Substrate Sedum Blanket is grown in the UK. Typically, it is not supplied until it is at least one year old, this ensures the root structure has developed, enabling it to cope with harvesting, transportation and relaying which can stress young sedum plants. The vegetation within this product is a broad mix of hardy sedum species.

  • Maximum Saturate Weight: ≤24kg/m².
  • Thickness: 30-40mm
  • Typical Supply Size: 1m x 2.4m
  • Long Roll Sizes (for use with crane attachment): 1m x 5m-10m
  • pH Value: 6.5-7
  • Sedum Species: circa 14-17 (The species mix is adjusted from time to time, please contact Bauder Technical for further information).

Lay immediately on delivery.

Growing medium condition: Immediately prior to planting, the whole system should be thoroughly watered to ensure that the water storage/drainage board is filled and the substrate growing medium saturated.

Blankets should be laid diagonally or perpendicular to the slope of the roof. Stagger joints, butt together or slightly overlap to prevent gaps. Blankets are not to be stretched. Thoroughly water using surface sprinklers immediately after installation and substrate dressing, ensuring that the blankets and substrate are fully saturated before moving on to the next area.

On steeper slopes the blankets can be additionally pegged with bio-degradable pegs (supplied by others) to secure them until they root, but these must not penetrate further than the depth of the substrate growing medium.

SB Substrate Sedum Blanket should only be layed by skilled operatives. Care should be taken not to traffic the sedum during or after installation. See Bauder’s Green Roof Installation Guide for full details.

Establishment Watering Requirements

SB Substrate Sedum Blanket requires surface watering for the first 4 weeks following installation (to ensure the substrate remains moist). It is the responsibility of the roofing contractor to liaise with the main contractor/ building owner to provide water and ensure that the planted and fertilised growing medium is thoroughly irrigated immediately after installation.

An adequate mains water supply, of sufficient pressure, must be available and operational prior to the plants being delivered and installed. Initial watering must be by surface mounted sprinklers. See the Bauder Watering Guide document for detailed information on watering requirements. Bauder Ltd accepts no responsibility whatsoever for the condition of installed planting that is not properly watered or irrigated following landscaping works.

Substrate / Growing medium

Lightweight, free draining substrates designed as a growing medium for a range of different plant species. This FLL/GRO compliant substrate provides a free draining, growing medium for extensive green roof systems. Additionally, it provides aeration qualities with some inherent water retention.

  • Material: Recycled crushed brick, expanded clay, shale, composted pine bark.
  • Maximum Weight (saturated): <1,200kg/m3
  • Typical supply weight: c. 900 kg/m3.
  • Water storage (by volume): 35%
  • pH value: 6-8.5
  • Bulk bag size: 1.25m3
  • Small bag size: 25L

For roofs pitched 6° upwards, apply the substrate growing medium directly into the open cup of the reservoir board and then build up to the depth specified. Substrates are raked out to give an even coverage of the required depth after settlement.

Handle in the driest condition possible. Do not handle or install when wet or frozen.

Start by applying two equal layers, building up to the required maximum depth.

Gently firm each layer before spreading the next. Allowance should be made for any settlement that may occur. It is recommended that ‘measuring stick’ markers of the required depth be used around the roof area to ensure that a minimum acceptable thickness of growing medium is achieved.

Depending on size and access of the project the ‘substrate’ can be supplied by various methods i.e. tipper, silo lorry (pumping directly onto the roof area), big bags, or sacks. Prior to costing this element of the installation, the ‘Bauder Approved Contractor’ must contact Bauder Ltd so that they may advise on the best solution on any specific contract.

Trellis Substrate restraint (inc. for all slopes above 16º): Provision must be made by the installing contractor for supplying and fabricating 25mm x 50mm untreated timber formed into a trellis frame that is supported at the base of the slope (resting against the protection layer). The trellis is to form a series of retaining grids 400mm square and used on all slopes between 16º - 25º. This trellis will provide initial retention until plant establishment and help prevent soil erosion. It will eventually rot away naturally.

Important note regarding alternative substrates: Alternative substrates are not recommended for Bauder supplied planting.

Filter layer:

- Bauder Filter Fleece:

Fine mesh PP geotextile used in conjunction with Bauder substrates. Bauder Filter Fleece is designed to separate and contain Bauder substrates from the drainage element of the green roof system (for slopes 0-5°). It prevents fine material from being washed out of the substrate layer.Fleece joints should be overlapped 150mm. Fleece should not be taken over the top of drainage outlets.

A filter layer is not used over reservoir board on slopes 6° or above, where the reservoir board is directly filled with substrate growing medium. However, a separate strip of Bauder Filter Fleece must still be used to separate the growing medium from the vegetation barrier at perimeter abutments and around pipe protrusions, outlet inspection chambers etc. dressed up all upstands and around all protrusions to at least flush with the finished surface level. At abutments the Filter Fleece must be used to separate the vegetation/drainage barrier and substrate growing medium by extending it 500mm beneath the reservoir board and then bringing it up between these two items.Upstands (soft landscaping): Extend up, between vegetation barrier and growing medium and trim flush with finished surface level.

Upstands (Hard landscaping): Extend to top of perimeter abutments and trim flush just below finished surface level.

  • Weight (saturated): 0.125Kg/m2
  • Pore size: 0.13mm.
  • Thickness: 1mm.
  • Roll size: 1 x 100m / 2 x 100m.
  • Coverage: 100m² / 200m2.
  • Water storage: None.
  • Material: Polypropylene fleece.

Drainage/Water storage layer:

- Bauder Reservoir Board Drainage and Protection Layer:

Water storage and multi-directional drainage layer. Used on roofs 0-25° finished falls (the only suitable Drainage and Protection layers for slopes 6° upwards). Boards laid over the entire area to provide continuous drainage and increased water capacity for the vegetation.

Loose laid (open cups up) on to the Protection Layer (or WFRL on inverted roofs) over completed waterproofing ensuring that the rebated boards are properly interlocked to provide adequate anchorage prior to the soil being laid. The board cups can be filled with water to provide temporary loading against wind uplift prior to installing the remaining landscaping elements in accordance with the specification. In the event of any confusion concerning this item, Bauder Ltd should be contacted so that advice may be given.

Cut to fit closely around penetrations and outlets.

Roof slopes 6° upwards, a parapet wall or restraint kerb must be provided to support the water storage / drainage board at the base of the slope. This should be included within the deck construction and reference made within the waterproofing specification also. This in turn will restrain and stabilise the landscaping against imposed shear load forces.

  • Size: 0.795m x 1.298m (rebates).
  • Depth: 50mm / 75mm.
  • Coverage: 1m².
  • Water storage (when unfilled): 10L / 22.1L.
  • Compressive strength: 25KN/m2 / 35KN/m2.
  • Weight (substrate filled and saturated): 10.65kg/m² / 22.1kg/m2.
  • Material: Expanded polystyrene.

Vegetation Barrier/Hard Edge/Fire Break:

- Vegetation Barrier (supplied by others):

For slopes below 10° only. (Roof slopes 10° upwards a hard edge should be supplied using paving slabs as an alternative to 20/40mm round river washed pebbles).

A vegetation barrier must be provided to all perimeters, abutments penetrations including protrusions i.e. man-safe posts etc. We recommend 20/40mm rounded river washed pebbles.

Stones/aggregates with sharp edges must not be used i.e. flint.

In accordance with current GRO guidelines, the specified barrier widths are as follows: -

  • Minimum 300mm but increasing to 500mm at vertical walls with opening windows or doors or to abutments with opening rooflights.
  • Every 40m, there is a 30mm high barrier constructed of non-flammable materials or a one metre wide strip of solid paving, gravel or pebbles.
  • At all open drainage perimeters, drainage trim must be used to contain the vegetation barrier.
  • Vegetation barrier removal or reduction of the recommended width: Pebble vegetation barriers function as a fire break between potentially flammable dry vegetation and abutting construction materials that are also potentially flammable, to prevent fire spreading. These can be seen as an aesthetic issue for smaller green/blue roof areas and for this reason some clients/designers choose to reduce this width or otherwise remove the barrier altogether.

The current barrier guidelines are set by the GRO codes of practice that Bauder follows and promotes. These are guidelines and not currently a legal requirement under British Standards or Building Regulations. However, not following these guidelines may affect an insurance claim in the unlikely event of a fire. Consequently, Bauder Ltd cannot accept liability for issues arising from non-compliance with the current GRO guidelines.

Fertiliser:

- Bauder Xero Flor Organic Fertiliser

Bauder Sedum Blankets are grown in a shallow growing medium which contains very little nutrient, so the annual application of fertiliser is crucial to ensure that the plants remain healthy. Fertiliser should ideally be applied during March/April, as it helps the plants to prepare for extreme weather conditions and flowering whilst also allowing the different species to gain sufficient nutrients without competing against each other.

Organic fertilizer can be obtained direct from Bauder in 25kg bags, which is sufficient for an area of 312.5m2 when applied at the recommended rate of 80g/m². Areas of up to 30m² may be applied using either a handheld spreader or strewn by hand from a bucket. Larger roofs should always be done using a trolley applicator, which can be purchased direct from Bauder. Always apply the fertiliser at the given rate written on the bag.

It is recommended that the fertiliser is lightly ‘watered in’ immediately after application, to avoid “burning” of the foliage, which may occur if fertilizer pellets settle on the leaves. Dung-based organic fertilizers should be avoided.

Irrigation (supplied by others):

It is always advisable to ensure that there is a water supply point adjacent to the green roof, both to assist with general maintenance and as a precaution against extreme drought conditions.The sedum plants used in the Bauder SB Substrate Sedum Blanket System absorb and store water in their leaves, which they then use to survive during periods of drought. If drought conditions arise it is important to check the plant leaves to see if they are still fleshy and not completely dried out.When the Bauder SB Substrate Sedum Blanket System is installed we recommend the provision of either a leaky pipe or drip line irrigation system.

Bauder recommend provision is made for an irrigation system to any substrate based green roof.Irrigation should only be activated during prolonged periods of hot, dry weather, or if the sedum plants are showing signs of distress. The irrigation system is best activated for 2-3 hours, preferably at dawn or dusk to minimize unnecessary evaporation. Then once every 4-6 days for the duration of the hot weather conditions. This can be easily managed by using an inexpensive battery-powered, programmable timer.

Please note - continuous daily watering is neither recommended nor necessary and will only promote weeds and other unwanted plant species.
