Title (EN) PARTIALLY CONTAINED, REDUCED WEIGHT PLANT GROWTH MEDIUM
(FR) MILIEU DE CROISSANCE VEGETALE DE POIDS REDUIT ET PARTIELLEMENT LIMITE
Abstract:
(EN) An at least partially contained, reduced weight (PCRW) plant growth medium, providing a sand/soil matrix including a sand/soil mixture in which plants can grow. The sand/soil matrix preferably includes sand/soil displacement structures proximate a plurality of isolated locations where the uninterrupted sand/soil depth in that zone is less than in a first set of isolated locations. The sand/soil displacement structures having a weight per unit area that is less than the weight per unit area of the sand/soil mixture, thereby reducing the weight of the growth medium, while still providing a suitable sand/soil profile for plant growth. A building structure, a spectator pavilion and a modular plant growth system including such a PCRW plant growth medium, or a plurality thereof, are also disclosed as are methods of building a reduced weight green space on a roof of a building structure.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un milieu de croissance végétale de poids réduit partiellement limité ('partially contained reduced weight' ou PCRW) qui constitue une matrice de sable/terre comprenant un mélange de sable/terre dans lequel la plante peut pousser. La matrice de sable/terre comprend de préférence des structures de déplacement de sable/terre proches d'une pluralité d'emplacements isolés où la profondeur de sable/terre ininterrompue dans la zone est inférieure à celle d'un premier ensemble d'emplacements isolés. Les structures de déplacement de sable/terre précitées possèdent un poids par unité de zone qui est inférieur au poids par unité de zone du mélange de sable/terre, réduisant de la sorte le poids du milieu de croissance tout en offrant encore un profil de sable/terre apte à la croissance des végétaux. L'invention se rapporte aussi à une structure de construction, à un pavillon pour spectateurs et à un système de croissance végétale modulaire comprenant le milieu de croissance PCRW précité, ou une pluralité de ceux-ci, et à des procédés de construction d'un espace vert de poids réduit sur le toit d'une structure de construction.
