How to go really green with a living roof

make a green roof

Some people go green with a smart thermostat in their house or solar panels on the roof. While these additions might go some way to saving money and power usage, they don’t directly help the local ecology.

A green roof will help….

A green Enviromat Sedum Matting roof, on the other hand, will help your local wildlife whilst providing a gorgeous feature around your home or garden. Enviromat Sedum Matting provides a constant sea of green and flowering plants for your sheds, summer houses, stables or other outbuildings. It is designed to create an easy-to-install-and-maintain sedum roof. Ideal for the home or office, it can also provide a green feature in built-up areas and high rise-apartments where there isn’t a natural alternative.

We can help install and maintain your roof. Professional installation is a good idea. The materials used can be heavy and it is definitely a job for more than one person. Plant maintenance is minimal, requiring only a yearly feed. It makes sense to check your sedum regularly to ensure the matting is secure and in good condition. If you’re planning a new garden or building, then we are more than happy to work with the designer, architects or contractors to install one.

Enviromat is available in custom sizes to fit any project. It includes a range of sedum and stonecrop plants that will flower throughout the year, providing constant variety and colour. As well as being good for the wildlife, Enviromat helps absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and can filter dust particles and other pollutants. The Enviromat product drains easily and is drought-tolerant. With minimal need for watering, it will thrive whatever the local weather conditions.

So, instead of throwing money into high-technology green solutions, why not go back to basics? Add a flexible, attractive and truly environmentally friendly piece of greenery which is modern, and which will bring life to an old building or make a true feature out of a shed or other building.
