What is sedum roofing?
A sedum roof is a roof overgrown with succulents, or sedum plants. Sedum plants are very vigorous plants, can withstand extreme and changing weather conditions and grow almost anywhere. There is a suitable sedum roof covering for every type of roof.
Also, these succulents can store water in their leaves which makes them ideal for a green roof. Besides the fact that sedum roofs look beautiful both in winter and summer, sedum roofing has many other advantages.
The benefits of a green roof
There is increasing interest in sedum roofs. There is an explainable reason for this: a green roof is good for people and the environment. One of the main advantages of a green roof is that it collects rainwater, which is later returned to the air through evaporation. The remaining precipitation is removed from the roof surface only after some time. Thus, a green roof contributes to a stable groundwater level. In addition, a sedum roof requires little maintenance: the sedum plants can take care of themselves. Further advantages are cleaner air, more space for insects, bees and butterflies, protection from heat and a sedum roof lasts twice as long.
But did you know that a sedum roof also provides heat and sound insulation? This is because it absorbs noise so that you notice less of the ambient noise such as a busy road, a railway line or the city centre. It is also the ideal solution for not hearing the clatter of rain and hail. During winter, succulents retain heat and during summer it cools down your home wonderfully.
When do you install sedum roofs?
It is often the case that the installation of sunshades, for example, is seasonal. Is this also the case with sedum roofs? The answer is: no! A sedum roof can be installed at any time. However, it is advisable to install a green roof on a dry day to be on the safe side. In addition, during summer it is necessary to provide the green roof with extra water so that the plants do not dry out.
Another consideration for installing a sedum roof: is your current roof suitable for it? This is because it is important that the roof is solid and allows rainwater to drain away. If there is an excess of water, it is possible for moss to grow.
Sedum roof options
When it comes to a sedum roof from SedumPlaza, there are two options: click-and-go sedum trays or roll-out sedum mats. The five green roof packages in our range have different sedum mats and sedum trays. We will now go through the green roof packages one by one:
- Green roof package Aroma: The planting consists of a mixture of flowering and aromatic herbaceous mats, supplemented by sedum plants. The result is a green roof with varied colourful vegetation.
- Green roof package Click 'n Go: Customer-ready sedum trays, the advantage of these trays is that they are easy to click together on the roof. Use the free protective canvas supplied to protect the roofing. This cloth also buffers the extra water.
- Green roof package Lightweight: Thanks to this lightweight green roof system, even roofs with light bearing capacity are transformed into green oases.
- Green roof package Flat: Specially made for roofs with a maximum pitch of 5°. The substrate layer is a nutrient-rich substrate that ensures healthy and strong sedum plants.
- Green roof package Place 'n Go: The customer-ready sedum trays can be placed directly next to each other on the roof. Included in the package is a protective cloth, which should be applied to protect the roof covering.
A sedum cassette is the common name for the Click 'n Go green roof package and is the way to snap together a lightweight sedum roof. The nice thing about the sedum cassette is that it is easy to apply, which is ideal for the do-it-yourselfer. How the sedum cassette is constructed? You can best compare it to a shallow planter made up of several layers.
The top two layers of the sedum cassette consist of succulents, sedum plants and roof garden substrate. The lower layers of the sedum cassette they for drainage and rainwater storage. These layers also protect the roof covering. Under the sedum cassettes, you provide your roof with a root-proof foil and a protective canvas.
