Project Description

M-Tray® green roof

Sydenham, UK

We were asked to replace a struggling green roof on the rooftops to the side and back of this beautiful family home in Sydenham, South London. Take a look at the results below.

Installation

The speed and ease of transporting and installing our modular trays meant minimum disruption for the homeowner.

Trays were delivered to site on pallets and then handballed to the roof.

The modules are laid down onto our geotextile to provide a little additional protection between the tray and the roof membrane.

Pebbles were laid around the perimeter between the trays and any outlets.

Once installed the vegetation blends quickly creating a seamless green roof and, looking out from the upper floors, a sense of continuity from the house across the garden.

One year later

We have returned on several occasions to check the roof’s progress and are delighted to find it looking amazing. And just over a year after the trays were installed, we took these aerial and close-up shots of the green roof.

The hardy vegetation blends across the trays creating a view of seamless green across the roof and on to the garden. You can see the range of sedum species seeded into every tray, ensuring you have a variety of colour throughout the year.
