The Perlethorpe Centre works closely with schools and groups from Nottinghamshire and further afield. They provide individually tailored days for young people and adults to enjoy quality outdoor learning experiences. Their programmes aim to enrich the curriculum and help learners reach their full potential. The centre is also available for self-led groups throughout the year.
Perlethorpe is a child-friendly, inspirational environment for young people.
The Perlethorpe Centre is part of Notts Outdoors. Within the facility Nottinghamshire County Council has built a new bunkhouse with a sedum roof. The Bunkhouse is used for overnight camping activities for schools in the Nottinghamshire area. But it has no water or electrics so it’s pretty rustic. Built around a wooden frame it will be built on foundation blocks and accommodate up to ten people.
As part of the Perlethorpe Centre build, the Bunkhouse has adopted a sedum roof with full roof edging. The Bunkhouse has been fitted with our Sedum Pitched Roof Kit . Both will help create the final, environmentally-friendly look. The kit itself is perfect for pollinators and includes the main ingredients to transform a gently sloping roof into a true green roof.
Perlethorpe Centre, Nottinghamshire – Green Roofs…
More than just a fad or decorative novelty, a living green roof provides insulation. They can help prevent flooding, filter pollutants from the air, absorb noise and provide food and shelter for wildlife.
Each of our green roof kits contains a root barrier to protect your waterproofing from any potential root damage, as well as a living carpet of hardy sedum plants.
Every single one of the sedum mats we use in our Enviromat® sedum green roof kits is seeded with up to 17 different types of sedum. They are nurtured outdoors in our nursery for between 9 & 12 months. We ensure that every single plant is strong enough for despatch, ensuring the best quality sedum mats for your green roofs. Plus, each plant species is chosen for their disease resistance, drought tolerance, long flowering period and enviable good looks.
All of our matting is made using recycled materials and products. So you can feel sure that your new green roof kit is environmentally friendly. It is not only very strong and easy to install, but also carefully designed to keep the growing medium within the mat. This means that you shouldn’t see any loss of substrate during handling and transportation; or from heavy rain after installation.
