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

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.


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.

Pebbles for Sedum Roofs

Substrate drainage layer and pebbles can be bought separately. Sedum Green Roof can advise or lay your roof whatever your requirements.

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).
