Vegetation Technology in Landscaping

We are interested in the "greening" of urban areas such as roofs, underground parking lots, over-tunneling and facades. Our research focuses on plant use, optimization of construction materials, substrates in particular, drainage materials and cover materials resistant to roots. We also do extensive research on developing water retention capabilities of green roof systems, automatic irrigation systems for vegetation areas in horticulture and landscaping, and developing physical methods to identify substrates and their qualities. We teach subjects such as Vegetation Technology, Earthworks, Soil Mechanics, as well as Bioengineering in the Landscape Architecture degree program.
