Sedum Roofs offer many benefits

More and more people are installing living roofs for their many green benefits – which include improving air quality, slowing water run-off so reducing flash flood risk, providing a wildlife-friendly environment and reducing fuel bills by improving insulation.

Low-growing sedum is one of the most popular choices for a living, or green roof. It is hardy and requires only a shallow substrate, so does not add too much weight to a roof. The many different varieties available offer red, yellow, grey and pink leaves as well as all shades of green, so that year-round colour and interest can be maintained.

Everything from a dog kennel or garden shed to a large commercial building can benefit from a sedum roof.

In the early days of green roofs, people worried that installation might be difficult and expensive. Those fears have largely been dispelled with the introduction of tray systems.
