Imagine a low growing carpet of plants that will flower all summer long and needs virtually no maintenance. That’s what you can achieve in next to no time with Sedum Ground Mats
Sedum ground mats create an ornamental ground cover which flowers from April to the end of October. It’s a truly stunning and very low maintenance alternative to a grass lawn. The foliage is evergreen beautifully textured and full of interest all year round.
Our sedum ground mats are great for a sunny spot and are especially useful where soil is very dry – or even non-existent. The mats are delivered with at least 90% plant coverage. All you need to do is unroll them onto a prepared surface and give them a good watering.
We seed our sedum ground mats with 7 different types of sedum. The mats are then nurtured outdoors in our UK nursery for 9-12 months or until they are big and strong enough for despatch. Plant species are chosen for their disease resistance, drought tolerance, long flowering period and unenviable good looks.
The matting itself is specially made using recycled products. It’s strong, easy to handle and designed to keep the growing medium (substrate) within the mat. So no loss of substrate due to handling, transportation or even heavy rain after installation. For that reason Sedum Ground Mats are great for sloping banks or for disguising manhole covers (the mat can be moved to allow access).
Sedums are drought tolerant and will only need an occasional watering during long spells of dry weather. Other than that, the only maintenance needed is an application of a specialist sedum feed every spring.
Please note: Species and proportions may vary depending on availability of seed through the seasons. Not all species listed will appear in every piece of Sedum Ground Matting
