Sedum Green Roof Kit for Pitched Roofs.

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. They can help prevent flooding, filter pollutants from the air, absorb noise and provide 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 up to 17 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.

Before you begin

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 build-up. Please get in touch with the Turfonline Team if you need advice on how to do this.

Key Points

  • Flowering Time: April – September (depending on local weather conditions).
  • Height when fully grown is generally around 15cm but can vary.
  • Plants are perennial and frost hardy down to around -20 degrees Celcius.

  • Install at any time of year.
  • The balance of plant species is affected by soil type, management, pollinator populations and local climatic conditions. Expect your Enviromat® Sedum Matting to change appearance from year to year.

Your Delivery

Turf Online aims to give its customers the best possible experience by delivering the best quality products for sale in the UK. Therefore, all our perishable products are harvested fresh to order the day before delivery, and we even accept orders for next-day delivery!

Delivery charges and services vary by different types of turf and delivery location. Charges are confirmed at checkout before payment. If your order includes grass turf, topsoil, Wildflower Turf or Sedum mats, you can choose your delivery day. You should arrange for live products to be delivered on the day you will lay them. Reducing the amount of time the product is stored means significantly less potential nuisance when it comes to installation; certain issues will not have had a chance to rise. All other products are delivered within 5 working days (or usually sooner!).

How Is Your Product Delivered?

We recommend that you only make arrangements for tradespeople to carry out work on your behalf after your turf or other products have been delivered.

PLEASE NOTE: Turf, Wildflower Turf, Sedum Mats and bulk Bag products are delivered on a pallet and can only be delivered to the kerbside. 

Most of our products for sale in the UK will be delivered by being transported by a pallet courier that primarily uses 18-tonne rigid trucks that are built for reaching the majority of UK addresses. However, it is possible that your delivery could be made on a larger vehicle. If access or other restrictions prevent vehicles above a certain size reaching your address, or there are other offloading or parking restrictions which could affect the delivery, let us know in the delivery notes section of checkout so that special delivery arrangements can be made. Please make sure you double check the delivery postcode and address carefully as after your order has been shipped, it is likely we will not be able to make any amendments to your order or address.

Delivery is unloaded using a manual pallet trolley which is lowered to the road by the tail lift on the truck. Unfortunately, we do not offer Hiab (truck-mounted crane) deliveries. To offload the pallet, the surface must be flat and level. Since Turf, Wildflower Turf, Sedum and topsoil can be heavy, and the pallet trolley pulled by the driver has small wheels, pallets cannot be delivered onto soil, grass or gravel – a tarmac or paved surface is required.

Kerbside delivery means that our products for sale in the UK is delivered as close as possible to the delivery address you provide. Our helpful drivers will do their best to place your delivery where you wish, such as a driveway, but this is at their discretion. If your delivery address is hard to find or the property is a new build, consider using what3words to pinpoint your delivery location. More information on what3words can be found in our Help Centre.

For more information on how The Pallet Network delivers our different types of products, please watch this short video.

What Issues Could Arise With Delivery?

If your product delivery cannot be made due to a reason you failed to make us aware of, the full cost of distribution and products will still be charged to you. We are proud that most of our turf deliveries arrive on time. Sometimes, circumstances beyond our control (extreme weather, road accidents, vehicle breakdowns or IT failures) can delay delivery, but we will make every effort to keep you updated in such an event.
