UK Green Roofing Kit with Sedum Mat per sq.m
Our UK Green Roofing kits are a blend of high quality products that have been put together to create the best living roof on the market.
The UK Green Roofing package comes with protective fleece, roof drainage board, minimum 50mm substrate and a sedum mat with 16 varieties of sedum.
We also have the UK Green Roofing Wildflower and Perennial Mat and we have set size kits. There are living roof edging products available and we sell the individual parts separately so you can create your own package. You will need to contact us for the vegetation layer price as this is based on your location, but the substrate, roof drain and protective fleece are available on the website.
Our Sedum mat is sown with a mixture of 16 varieties with differing colours and leaf forms. It is low maintenance and has a high tolerance to low amounts of water, due to the increased substrate thickness compared to other living roof systems. Its grown in a strong felt mat made from recycled British textiles and is supplied as a pre-grown instant vegetation layer.
The sixteen varieties of sedum give you a huge variety of colour and help enhance biodiversity. The sedum varieties we use offer a longer flowering season over other living roof systems. Colours range form greens through to vibrant reds, oranges, purples and browns. As well as a great variety of colours each sedum type offers a variety of beautiful textures for your living roof.
Maintenance is easy with light hand weeding once or twice a year to keep out wind blown seeds.
A Vegetation Barrier of 300mm to 500mm is made up from 20-40mm washed pebbles or gravel, which is used around the roof edge and also any drainage outlets or roof openings such as skylights, to prevent root penetration. (This needs to be bought separately depending on your projects needs).
The living roof edging products are manufactured in the UK from a high percentage of recycled aluminium supplied pre punched and profiled in 2.4m lengths in 75mm, 100mm, 120mm and 150mm to suit various depths of substrate. All corners and straight connectors are available too. For the UK Green Roofing Kits we recommend the 100mm option. (This needs to be bought separately depending on your projects needs).
The Substrate is an extensive mixture which makes for a low maintenance living roof, the substrate will be delivered in either bulk bags of 1.0 cubic metres or as bulk bags plus 25kg bags. This is to make sure there is always a minimum of 50mm of substrate depth on all our living roof packages.
For the waterproof layer we reccommend using the Hertalan EPDM membranes, PRO-EPDM membranes, ClassicBond EPDM or RESITRIX SKW. For full systems and help with your Living Roof please contact us.
