  • Popular FAQs

    • Does a green roof need maintaining?
      Yes. Green Roofs are 'Low-Maintenance' not 'No-Maintenance'. Green roof maintenance is generally a very simple process. They are designed so that they will not require endless hours spent on the roof in order to keep them looking at their best. Each type of green roof brings many different benefits to the occupants, the owners and the roof itself, so a little time maintaining the system is advantageous in the long run.
    • How often does a green roof need maintaining?
    • What access requirements are needed to install my green roof?
      The components of a green roof system can be delivered in m3 sacks, which is the best option for larger builds with crane access. However, on smaller installations with less access 25kg bags can be used and distributed by hand if the transporter cannot get close to the roof.
