Pilot site EAST GERMANY 1

Pilot site description


Ecogrow+ mats have been selected for some difficult to green areas alongside an old road bank in Thüringen.


A biomat with seeds has been combined with a layer of natural fibres. The natural fibres should guarantee that sufficient water is absorbed by the mat. A sufficient and stable humidity level is essential for a good germination of the seeds.


The natural fibres will disappear quite quickly whereas the biomat will keep on functioning as a anti-erosion mat for minimum 2 seasons.


A quick greening of the new to green areas avoids that restored road banks get damaged again by water erosion.
