- Abstract in English : In order to ensure the durable functioning of landscaped roofs and to meet the partial opposite demands of the vegetation and the building technology, green roof substrate have to be chosen very carefully. Therefore, the FLL has defined basic requirements to the substrate characteristics for extensive and intensive green roof vegetation. However, experience and scientific experiments have shown that substrates, which fulfil the FLL instructions sometimes, fail to support the desired roof vegetation. Possible reasons are discussed in this paper.
