Roof Greening

Many flat roofs are greened for ecological and aesthetic reasons. The roof plants have to withstand extreme weather conditions and have to survive with minimal care. Depending on the planting, it is however necessary, particularly in the dry and hot summer months, to irrigate the green roof. Due to the mostly shallow covering only a little bit of water can be stored the substrate.

The soil moisture sensor SMT100 is ideal for measuring the moisture in green roof construction as it reacts on irrigation immediately and irrigation can therfore be accurately controlled. A harmful overirrigation is effectively avoided.
