 Abstract
For artificial ground greening construction without root-proofing layer, this research reviewed the effect on watertightness of asphalt waterproofing layer by plant roots penetration based on crack width, and crack penetrated roots. Experiment on concrete crack width was performed with three conditions such as 0.15, 0.30, and 0.45 mm, and all three conditions confirmed that all plant roots penetrations were made through crack area in 12 ~ 18 months. In addition, according to evaluation of effects on waterproofing layer by crack penetrated plant roots and in condition of 0.45 mm crack width, it indicated that penetration is made on asphalt waterproofing layer in 12 months due to roots penetration.
