Abstract

The greening of impermeable surfaces, such as rooftops and unused concrete areas, offers multifaceted benefits to urban environments (biodiversity, temperature regulation, water retention, aesthetics). An innovative "ultra-extensive" greening technique, centered on promoting moss growth, provides a lightweight, cost-effective, and low-maintenance solution. The aim of this paper is to describe this technique and offer recommendations for a simple implementation method, providing an alternative to conventional greening practices.
