Our Sedum Green Roof Kits are designed for use on roofs with a slope of 3 - 20 degrees. Therefore, if you have a flat roof with a slope of 3 degrees or less, please check out of Flat Roof Kits.
More than just a fad or decorative novelty, a living green roof provides insulation, helps prevent flooding, filters pollutants from the air, absorbs noise and provides food and shelter for a vast variety of wildlife.
Each of our green roof kits, designed for pitched roofs, come with the main ingredients that you need to transform your gently sloping roof into a true green roof. Each kit contains a root barrier to protect your waterproofing from any potential root damage, as well as a living carpet of gorgeous hardy sedum plants. From the moment you unroll Enviromat Sedum Matting your roof will be carpeted with vegetation.
Every single one of the sedum mats we use in our Enviromat sedum green roof kits is seeded with 7 different types of sedum, being nurtured outdoors in our nursery for at least 9 - 12 months. We ensure that every single plant is strong enough to dispatch to you, ensuring the best quality sedum mats for your green roofs. On top of this, each plant species is chosen for their disease resistance, drought tolerance, long flowering period and unenviable good looks.
All of our matting is made using recycled materials and products, meaning that you can feel safe that your new green roof kit is environmentally friendly from nursery to home. It is very strong and easy to install, whilst also carefully designed to keep the growing medium within the mat. This means that you won’t see any loss of substrate through the handling or transportation of the green roof kit, or from heavy rain after installation.
Our green roof kits all come with sedums that are drought-tolerant, meaning that they only need to watered occasionally during extended period of dry weather. On top of this, they are all low maintenance, only requiring a specialist sedum feed every spring, unless your roof is pitched at a steep angle or exposed to drying wind.
For roofs with a pitch of 10 degrees or more, we strongly recommend installing an irrigation system and applying feed in early spring and early summer.
Please ensure that your roof is suitable for a sedum green roof. It must be able to carry a weight of 120Kg per square metre. (This figure includes ‘live loading’ so a coating of snow or a person walking on the roof will not compromise the building structure).
Waterproofing needs to be in good condition. A green roof build up will not fix any issues and it will be more difficult to make repairs once the layers are in place.
If your flat roof has no upstand, you will need to create an edging to protect the green roof buildup. Please get in touch with the Turfonline Team if you need advice on how to do this.
