Green Roofs

Everyone should have one!

We specialise in the design and planting of green roofs, taking into account pitch, aspect, weight loading, local climate and aesthetic requirements

Green roofs have many benefits, including reducing the urban heat island effect, improving thermal efficiency in buildings, reducing rainwater run-off by up to 60%, and increasing biodiversity. If you'd like to know more , see the links on this page to useful resources.

We can designs or suggest options for including a green roof - however small - in any project.
