Aqua-Flora® for all your nature-friendly banks!

Our Aqua-Flora® products make it possible to create a nature-friendly bank in an easy and sustainable way. One of the ways to realize this is by using our vegetation mats, also called embankment mats. The basic material of the Aqua-Flora® mats, rolls or Floatlands (actually floating!) is coconut fibre, which is combined with various waterside plants and marsh plants. The mats are placed in a basin for an entire growing season, where the plants will develop a fine mass of roots and rhizomes at the bottom side of the product.

Each product is suitable for a specific use. Aqua-Flora® mats, for instance, are ideal to be placed on a gentle slope and the rolls are perfect for hanging from a dull quay-wall. The Aqua-Flora® Floatlands bob along with a fluctuating water level, or what about an island in the centre of the pond?

Apart from the fact that these products provide both people and animals with something attractive to look at, there are many more advantages. Years of research and pilot projects have shown that, for instance, they boost biodiversity, improve water quality and prevent erosion.

Many aspects can be tailored to the clients wishes, such as a customized plant scheme, and adjusting the Aqua-Flora® products to size. Oval-shaped floating islands? No trouble at all as far as we’re concerned.
