UK Green Roofing Kit with Wildflower and Perennial 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 roof drainage board, minimum 100mm substrate and a wildflower and perennial with a wide variety of Wildflowers, Herbs and Flowering Perennials to create a living roof that looks stunning all year round.
We also have the UK Green Roofing Sedum Mat and we have per sq.m packages so you can order the perfect amount for your roof. 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 wildflower and perennial mat is sown with a mixture of wildflowers, herbs and flowering perennials 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 varieties of wildflower, herbs and perennials gives you a huge variety of colour and help enhance biodiversity over the pure sedum only roof. The mixture is designed to have a range of plants that will flower between April to September which not only add a visual appeal but provides an excellent habitat for wildlife. Colours range form greens through to vibrant reds, oranges, purples and browns. As well as a great variety of colours each wildflower, herb and perennial type offers a variety of beautiful textures for your living roof.
Research has shown that wildflower green roofs attract twice as many bee species and five times as many blossom visits compared to pure sedum roofs.
Maintenance is easy with light hand weeding once or twice a year to keep out wind blown seeds and one light cut in late autumn removing all cuttings.
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 100mm, 120mm and 150mm to suit various depths of substrate. All corners and straight connectors are available too. For the UK Green Roofing Wildflower Kits we recommend the 150mm option. (This needs to be bought separately depending on your projects needs).
The Substrate is an biodiversity mixture which is specifically designed for wildflower green roofs. We ship this in 25kg bags and cu.m bags to make sure you have a minimum of 100mm substrate depth.
For the waterproof layer we recommend using the Hertalan EPDM membranes, PRO-EPDM membranes or RESITRIX SKW. For full systems and help with your Living Roof please contact us.
