On the alleys and lawns of Gorky Park on Vorobyevskaya embankment, there are several kiosk houses with flower beds on the roofs. Here the company "Tsinko RUS" together with the Park launched an interesting green project: on pitched roofs, on top of waterproofing, green roofs of the Sedum system and the Blooming Meadow system were installed.
The Sedum system is a greening system with low-growing plants and a substrate height of 60 mm. Sedums and other perennials are designed to create a solid green or multi-colored (several colors) cover. And with the help of the "Blooming Meadow" system, the roof can be given an individual character. With extensive gardening, drought-resistant perennials are planted, such as a medium-sized carnation up to 400 mm high, pleasing to the eye with its flowering from spring to late autumn, and other flowers. These plants do not require special care after they are planted on the roof.
The most important thing is that the design solution of the Sedum and Blooming Meadow systems is easy and inexpensive to operate. After the installation of such roofs, further operation takes place with minimal human participation - 1-2 times a year!
Alexey Veinsky, a specialist in roof gardening, a member of the Union of Architects, General Director of Tsinko RUS, and Anna Zhuravleva, a landscape architect of the company, told the Morning program (Moscow-24 channel) about preparing roofs for planting plants in more detail.
Alexey Veinsky spoke in detail about why it is impossible to use just earth in green roofing systems, but you need to take a special substrate, how to correctly calculate the height of the cells of the system in order to ensure drainage and make a drainage immediately into the gutters, about "pies" and other green elements roofs. And landscape architect Anna Zhuravleva - about plants that have long been used on green roofs in Moscow and what herbs and flowers the Customer chose for pitched roofs in Gorky Park.
The company "ZinCo RUS" ("ZinCo") is a member of the National Roofing Union of Russia, the Union of Architects of Russia, the Association of Builders of Russia, and also conducts a course of lectures on advanced training for specialists of construction and architectural organizations on roof greening systems at the Center for New Building Technologies materials and equipment "Moskomarkhitektury.
Since 2008 the company "Tsinko RUS" provides a ten-year guarantee for the production of green roofs. About 50 projects with green roofs have been implemented, and all of them are working successfully. But it should be borne in mind that several companies should not build a green roof at once. The device of a green roofing system - from the base with hydro and thermal insulation, the "pie" of landscaping, the selection of plants for climatic zones and the substrate for them, to maintenance in operation - should be trusted by one company. Only then is the result guaranteed!
