Mr Standbrook wanted to make the most of his newly constructed shed in his garden in Durham. He decided that a green roof would be perfect to replace the vegetation in his garden that the shed would take up.
Sky Garden were happy to help and supplied the materials for a sedum plug plant green roof. The system is easy to install, and Mr Standbrook was happy to do this himself.
A plug planted roof can look a little sparse at first, but over time the sedum plants establish and spread across the roof to create a coverage very similar to a sedum blanket system.
As you can see, a year makes a huge difference to a sedum plug plant green roof!
Mr Standbrook has added a few stones and a stick pile to create habitats for insects, which in turn attracts other local wildlife; not to mention the beautiful sedum flowers attracting pollinators.
