Ever heard of a sedum roof?

A sedum roof is a type of living green roof, with a layer of vegetation (living plants) on top of it.

  • A green roof brings a whole host of benefits to the building and the environment:
  • They compensate for the loss of green surfaces, sacrificed to building developments
  • They can help to alleviate flooding, retaining more rain than a conventional roof, minimising the initial heavy runoff
  • The soft layer of sedum blanket growing on a green roof can absorb sound
  • It can also increase thermal insulation properties, making it warmer in winter, cooler in summer and reducing energy costs
  • They look great!
