All the best things come in small packages and on trays. Chocolates and TV dinners to name but two. If you’re looking to make an instant impact in your garden and you have a green roof project, then sedum trays are the answer.
Supplied full of sedum, these trays have a mix of drought-loving sedum plants all ready to go. FLL compliant substrate is included – giving a completely self-contained green roof solution. So that means no planting, none of that trying to work out how deep the growing medium needs to be, just simply put down some roof protection and fix the trays in place.
Not only that but with our roof edging holding everything in place, or a series of battens if you’d prefer, this is quite possibly the simplest and quickest way to create a green roof.
The result is an instant green roof, quicker than matting alone delivering a rooftop transformation virtually overnight.
Where to start? Firstly, measure your roof, then work out the number of trays you need (they measure 500mm x 500mm) and calculate how much load your roof can cope with. Add in some roof protection fleece to protect your roof, then simply order, plan your delivery and put in place (carefully, the trays interlock too) and watch the transformation. Quick, convenient and green.
Before you begin
Your roof must have a load bearing capacity of at least 180Kg per square metre in order to install a green roof. Please note that this includes the weight of live loading, like a person walking on the roof in order to install the green roof or carry out maintenance. We are unable to give specific advice on the suitability of your roof. We would advise to seek the advice of a structural engineer before undertaking a green roof project.
To complete your green roof installation you will also require the following:
- Fleece protection layer
- Suitable edging – An edging not only improves the looks of the installation but ensures adequate drainage.
- Easy to transport and install
- Self-contained pre-planted trays giving instant results
- Pollinator-friendly species with a long flowering period
- Drought tolerant
- Varied colour & texture
- Low maintenance
- Deep enough to support additional wildflower plugs
- Water storage and drainage built in – no need for additional components
Sedum Tray Maintenance
- Occasional watering
- Little to no mowing
- Size: 500mm x 500mm x 100mm deep – 4 trays required per square metre
- Weight: 18kg per tray – saturated weight up to 25kg
Please note: Species and proportions may vary depending on availability of seed through the seasons. Not all species listed will appear in every individual Sedum Tray.

Perishable living products should be installed on the day of delivery. In the unlikely event that your product does not arrive in good condition please get in touch immediately with photos showing the issue.
The actual percentage of each species contained may vary due to environmental factors. Turfonline makes every effort to ensure its products are free from weeds and pests, however due to the natural way in which these products are grown we cannot guarantee they are 100% pest free on delivery. May contain some grasses and mosses. Enviromat may not contain all species that are listed. The variation of species present has been developed to suit a wide variety of installations and environmental conditions. This will result in a product that will adapt to individual settings which may mean some species are more successful than others.
