Green Roofs

Green roof benefits, along with those of green walls, can have huge positive impacts on residential, institutional, industrial and commercial buildings. They provide such benefits as: Improving localised air quality, reduing greenhouse gas emissions, lessening the Urban Heat Island Effect, improving storm water management, reducing energy use, increasing the roof lifespan and increasing biodiversity.

Our green roofs are uniquely made up of pre-vegetated sedum/wildflower/combi trays which, in most cases, can be placed directly onto the existing waterproof membrane. Thanks to their puzzle like modular construction they can be temporarily or permanently installed and look stunning from day one. 

Green roofs can essentially be categorised into two system types: Extensive and Intensive. Extensive green roofs are characterised by their low weight, low capital cost and minimal maintenance. Intensive green roofs have a greater soil depth and more diverse planting options with higher maintenance requirements.
