    No Peat, no brick, no green waste. We have blended our own growing medium using only the very best raw materials. Even our own well water. To make an ultralight, highly sustainable, free draining, substrate with food for the plants. Our medium now provides our plants with vibrant and healthy growth all year round.

    Natural Drainage

    Natural, sustainable, hydroponic clay aggregate. Inert, lightweight, superb for plant growth and rooting structure. Blended into the substrate for optimum drainage on a roof. We don't use the plastic drainage layer anymore. We now use something better for the environment and better for the green roof.

High performing, lightweight and plastic free.

There's too much plastic used in horticulture. We were using about 20 tons of plastic per year to create artificial drainage. That's 20 tons less needless plastic per year. Surely there was a better alternative. There was. Nature. We now see much better plant performance. Much better drainage and a more sustainable future.

  • For the sake of the Bees

    Because of the quantity of flowers per square metre nothing attracts bees like our Sedum Blanket. Why not install your own natural bee hive on your roof?  

  • The Birds and the Rain

    Keeps the living space quieter. Sound proof your garden room and make it a much more tranquil place to relax.

The Evermat Sedum Roof 

Green Roofs Direct blend just the right sedum and grow it in the right conditions so that it needs as little maintainance as possible.

Most of our EverMat™ roofs never require any maintainance, but if you want to keep it in pristine condition these are a few things you can do.

  • After installation

    Water your new sedum three times a week for the first three weeks.

  • During prolonged dry spells

    Water occasionally. Scattering some fertaliser on your roof can also help.

  • Weeding

    If you ever notice anything growing in the sedum that shouldn’t be there, just pluck it out.
