Roof Garden Mixes

Roof Garden Mixes

Roof gardens are becoming increasingly popular in urban and rural areas alike.  Not only do they offer a green space where it may not be possible to have a conventional garden, they also provide energy and cost saving benefits.

Green roofs reduce heat transfer through the roof which means that less energy is required to heat and cool the property.  This can result in substantial cost savings over time.

Due to the nature of its application, roof garden growing media must be as lightweight as possible, whilst still containing the nutrients required to maintain plant growth.  We have developed two ‘standard’ roof garden mixes that can be used for slightly different applications depending on the end result that you are looking to achieve:

  1. Extensive Roofsoil Dry
    Extensive Roofsoil
    From £116.00

    This lightweight growing media is most commonly uses for sedum planting and is designed specifically for environmental purposes. Once planted very little maintenance is required.

    We blend this mix to order using clean crushed brick and PAS100 certified green waste compost. The crushed brick will reduce the weight of the growing media whilst also helping with water regulation, absorbing and releasing as required.

    Available in Loose Load & Bulk Bags.

    20 litre bags are available subject to minimum order, please contact us for further details).

  2. Intensive Roofsoil Dry
    Intensive Roofsoil
    From £106.00

    Unlike the Extensive media which requires very little maintenance, our Intensive roofsoil has been developed to enable customers to recreate a conventional garden space on the roof. As with any planted garden these green spaces will require regular maintenance, irrigation and management.

    We blend premium, British Standard certified sandy loam topsoil with lightweight expanded clay aggregate to create a free draining but relatively lightweight growing media.

    Available in Loose Loads & Bulk Bags.

    20 litre bags are available subject to minimum order, please contact us for further details).

  3. Drainage media for Roof Gardens Dry
    Drainage media for Roof Gardens
    From £55.00

    Roof gardens will require an efficient drainage system to ensure that excess water is directed away from the planted areas. 40mm shingle is commonly used in drainage channels, but we are able to offer a crushed brick alternative. The brick ranges in size from 20 – 50mm. It is much lighter than shingle and offers an attractive alternative aesthetic border to your planted roof garden.

    Available in Loose Loads & Bulk Bags.

    20 litre bags are available subject to minimum order, please contact us for further details).
