Who We Are

Eco Green Roofs takes pride in the design, supply and installation of sustainable green roofs. Our scientific knowledge of green roof systems sets us apart and allows us to provide technical expertise that is backed up by published academic research.

A green roof is a living system that cannot be treated as a typical building or roofing product, getting it right is a science!

Eco Green Roofs was formed by three close friends as a project based around a passion for the environment. This passion has developed into an industry leading business – promoting novel, sustainable and superior products. We have seen the company grow rapidly to become a leading competitor in the market place.

Sedum Blankets

_DSC5636 Our Sedum blanket systems incorporate pre-grown Sedum plant species onto ‘blankets’ or ‘mats’ in roll sizes of 1m x 1.5m. The blankets are established over a minimum of 12 months and include 14 U.K. native species at over 90% coverage. They are produced in coastal locations where many species are naturally found. This makes our plants hardened to harsh and saline conditions, ensuring a robust product for rooftop environments. Eco Green Roof mats are easily installed and provide instant greening for immediate visual impact.

Sedum Seeded

_DSC5637 Sedum seeded roofs are systems that have been sown with seeds from Sedum plant species. Our Sedum seeded systems have an application rate of approximately 0.5g/sqm and we use seed mixes that contain a broad range of Sedum species. With the right growing conditions and maintenance schedule these roofs will take 12-24 months to develop.

Sedum Planted

IMG_1084Sedum plug-planted systems use young plant material (small seedling plugs) planted at a density of 20-25 plants/sqm. A broad range of Sedum species are available to increase the diversity of the system and provide more floristic interest. These types of roofs are immature and will therefore take around 12 months to establish with the correct maintenance (see maintenance section).

Wildflower Blankets

index Wildflower blanket systems provide more diverse plant communities than Sedum green roofs. They are particularly favored when ecological, aesthetic and environmental function needs to be considered. Blankets are pre-established for a minimum of 12 months and include up to 50 U.K. native wildflower, herb and grass species. Eco Green Roof wildflower mats are easily installed and provide instant greening for immediate visual impact.

Wildflower Seeded

butterfly   Wildflower seeded roofs are systems that have been sown with seeds from a wide range of wildflower species. We use an application rate of approximately 5g/sqm and source seed mixes that contain a broad range of annual wildflowers and herbs to maintain flowering diversity and seasonal interest. Additional species can be added to further increase diversity for both ecological and environmental function if desired. With the right growing conditions and maintenance schedule these roofs will take 12-24 months to develop.

Wildflower Planted

bee_1874392b   Wildflower plug-planted systems use young plant material (small seedling plugs) planted at a density of 20-25 plants/sqm. Broad ranges of wildflower species are available to maximize the diversity of the system and provide floristic interest both for aesthetical and ecological reasons. These types of roofs are immature and will therefore take around 12 months to establish with the correct maintenance (see maintenance section).

Bio-diverse / Brown Roofs

WESTFIELDS STRATFORD   Bio-diverse or Brown roof systems are specifically designed for biodiversity by offering a broad range of annual and perennial wildflower and grass species, and providing a mosaic of habitat opportunities for important invertebrate and bird species. In particular these roofs are created for species important to the site or regional bio-diversity plan; and incorporate several different substrate types placed a different depths to produce undulations (or a contoured effect). Log, stone and sand piles are added for f
