A sedum roof is a low maintenance light weight roof. It comprises of a layer of drainage board, filter fleece, a layer of substrate, usually 50mm deep and one of the following.
- Blankets – Our blankets are mature mats that contain 14 different types of sedum. They are grown in harsh mountainside conditions which make them robust and hardy for the conditions on a typical rooftop. Each blanket is 1.5m x 1m in size and offers instant coverage to an area.
- Seeds – A variety of sedum seeds are sown directly into the substrate at a rate of 0.5g per m2 and they will take a few months to establish. We always account for birds feeding on your seeds so always supply enough to make sure you have enough to ensure they grow.
- Plugs – Plugs are small sedum plants that we recommend are planted at a rate of 20-25 per m2 directly into the substrate. We use a mixture of species and would expect the plants to develop in only a few weeks and begin to spread within a few months.
Our Sedum is grown on harsh mountainside conditions which makes it robust and hardy for the conditions on a typical rooftop. Sedum colours change from a lush green and pink colour in the summer, and in the winter it turns to a darker green colour, making sure there is a colour all year round.
