We can advise as to the correct species for your roof.  Some species can thrive in shady areas and some are more tolerant to others of certain environmental factors so contact us for advice. Sometimes certain colour schemes are desired or patterns such as logos etc.  These can all be supplied but customised planting may have to be ordered in advance.

Modular System for Sedum the S.Pod

Sedum_modular.jpg                Sedum modular_system_S.Pod.jpg

This is a new modular method where the tray is planted with the sedum and can be placed straight onto a waterproofed roof as the substrate and drainage layer are incorporated into the Pod.

 

Maintenance

Sedum roof maintenance is minimal but Sedum Green Roof can supply an Installation Package and Maintenance visits..

 

Grow to Order

If you require large quantities of Sedum we may have to grow them for you, so allow plenty of time. Sedum mats usually take between six and nine months to mature ready for rolling and transport.

Plugs

We can offer trays of different species of sedum plug plants, which can be planted direct into the substrate. See our new Sedum roof plug offer. On roofs 28 plants per Sq metre is usual.
