Sedum Roofing System
Why not add a touch of nature to your log cabin with a living roof. With many benefits, a living roof for your log cabin will add natural lustre, insulation, and soundproofing.
Sedum matting is a landscaping material used by architects, garden designers and roofing contractors to create living roofs quickly and easily.
The pre-grown mats are despatched with at least 95% plant coverage
With good drainage and plenty of sunshine, whether it’s on a roof or on the ground, sedum matting is remarkably easy to care for and will give you an attractive roof all year round.
Why buy a Living Roof for your Log Cabin?
✔ Great for wildlife - Sedum plants are particularly rich in pollen and nectar and are a great food source for bees, butterflies, moths and hoverflies. This in turn attracts birds who also eat the seedheads and use spent flower stalks as nesting material.
✔ Rainwater management - In towns and cities, up to 75% of rain-water becomes runoff. A living roof will absorb much of the rain that falls on it and lower the risk of flooding.
✔ Solar energy - If you have PV panels on your roof a layer of plants will lower the surface temperature in the summer making them far more efficient.
✔ Insulation - Insulates against heat and cold saving on heating and air conditioning bills.
✔ Soundproofing - A sedum green roof can potentially halve the amount of noise pollution entering a building. For people who appreciate peace and quiet, a green roof is ideal for a garden office or studio.
✔ Good looks - Living roofs can help blend a building with its surroundings or transform it into an outstanding feature. Easy to install and maintain, sedum will flower for a good six months of the year and maintain its amazing textural foliage all year round.
