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 Tray

Sedum_modular Tray or S.Pod ready for a Green Roof                Sedum modular_system_S.Pod with lovely autumn colours ready for a Green Roof

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. These are lightweight and easy to manage so are very good for the DIY enthusiast.


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 for your sedum roofs 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. We can also provide sedum plugs but be prepared to wait longer for a mat if grown from small sedum plugs.

Benefits of Green Roofs


Green roofs can provide important microclimates for insects, bird life and other even rare species.


Green roofs can positively affect the heat produced by urban environments, (the Urban Heat Island).


Green roofs significantly reduce the surface run off of rainfall. (A mechanism for Sustainable urban  Drainage Systems).
