Architects, property developers and householders are all looking for ways to improve eco-efficiency and combat the effects of climate change. The benefits associated with a green roof are huge, not only do they provide a habitat that supports the UK’s pollinators, they are really easy to maintain and look amazing.

Our sedum blanket is seeded with up to 18 different types of sedum, meaning that you get a wonderful mix of foliage to enjoy. The mats are grown outdoors in our UK nursery for 9-12 months ensuring at least 95% coverage. The plant species chosen have great disease resistance, drought tolerance and long flowering periods from early April until the end of October. When not in flower, the foliage of our sedum plants are evergreen providing interest all year round.
The matting itself is specially made using recycled products, whilst still being strong and easy to handle. We only despatch our sedum blankets when they are mature. This means there is no loss of substrate due to handling, transportation or even heavy rain after installation.
