How it works

Moss layer

Instead of roots, mosses have rhizoids; tiny hairs with which they anchor themselves to a surface.

Bio-enhancing gel

The bio-gel allows moss spores to attach to the surface while providing them with nutrients, water, and shelter.

Bioreceptive concrete

A sustainable concrete with enhanced porosity and a textured surface to create to optimal environment for mosses.

Constructive element

The carrying, underlying structure to which the concrete layer can be applied.
