How do I install a green roof?

It is possible to install a green roof yourself. Before you do this, of course you want to know how it works. You start by cleaning the roof to prevent leakage. Then lay the root-resistant membrane on the roof, which provides extra protection. Then apply the protective membrane. The protective membrane is included in the green roof package. This protects your roof and ensures that it remains waterproof. After this, you lay the drainage layer on top of the protective canvas. This layer ensures that water does not stay between the plants and the green roof does not get too wet.

Sempergreen sedum tray or Sempergreen sedum mat

There are two Sempergreen sedum green roof systems: Sempergreen sedum tray or Sempergreen sedum mat. You can order five green roof packages with different sedum mats / sedum trays in our webshop.

Sempergreen's green roof packages

These are the five green roof packages from Sempergreen:

Once you have done all this, you can lay the roof garden substrate on top of the drainage layer. In the green roof packages (Click 'n Go and Place 'n Go), the substrate and drainage layer are already incorporated in the cassettes and tiles. Are you laying the green roof on a warm and dry day? Then make sure the substrate is wet before laying the plants on the substrate layer. Now you can place the plants on the roof. Water the plants so the plants can root well in the substrate layer.

Why install a green roof?

There are several reasons why adding a green roof to your roof is a good idea. By having a green roof, you help reduce the temperature in the city. A green roof also attracts various insects and birds, which is good for the city's biodiversity. A green roof also increases the output of your solar panels, if you have them on your roof.
