Muswell hill roof

Another one on a new extension this one was specified with a sedum mat. Ever keen to increase biodiversity I also sowed it with wildflower seeds. I quite like it as a way to put the roof together, very simple and also quick, if a bit heavy getting the mat up to the roof. The sedum roofs often die out quickly but this one has a good layer of substrate underneath for it to grow into which should retain water and increase resilience.

Highgate green roof

A 2 section green roof installed in Highgate as part of an Eco retrofit being carried out at the property. We incorporated reclaimed york stone paving slabs to create a path which was lined with lemon thyme that should grow over it and release a fragrance when trodden on. Some of the existing planters were retained and we used lots of grasses and some saffron crocuses.
