Help nature recover

All Organic Roofs specs are based on GRO Code guidance on green roof build ups, but we encourage deeper substrate depths wherever possible to increase biodiversity potential.

Ask us about our Habitat Upgrade package: a range of specially selected biodiversity hotspots for bees, butterflies and other invertebrates to improve the biodiversity contribution of whichever green roof you choose.

Additional information

Typical flowering season
June – August

Recommended maintenance regime
Once per year in Spring ahead of growing season with a second optional in Autumn to thin out spreading varieties & remove invasives (not optional if needed to clear leaf litter, after final drop – usually late November)

Biodiversity contribution
Acceptable (Excellent during short flowering season)

Our research with MSc Urban Ecology students at University of Brighton confirms sedum is an excellent food source for pollinators when in flower. Low growing plants that maintain consistency year round provided there is suitable type and quantity of growing medium.

Limited biodiversity contribution when not in flower. These plants benefit from feeding, but this creates ideal conditions for invasives – which are easily visible and can be unsightly because sedum itself is low-growing. Dislikes shade and poorly draining roofs.
