A living roof can benefit you and your business in a variety of ways.

PR benefits of a living green roof

First and foremost, a green roof can help to improve your business’s public image. Green roofs aren’t just environmentally-friendly, they’re also customer-friendly.

Because green roofs offer a sanctuary for wildlife and have a positive impact on the environment, having one installed can help your business project an environmentally-responsible and caring image that customers will love.

Your customers will love the idea that you are taking an active part in providing habitat for bees and other wildlife.
Increase the wildlife value of your green roof with a log pile, an insect hotel or even a honeybee hive. 

A green roof can also give your premises a relaxed and welcoming vibe that will further improve prospective customers’ impression of you.

Reducing business overheads

A green roof can help you keep your overhead costs to a minimum. Green roofs provide excellent insulation and can help keep your business premises warm during colder weather. So you won’t have to spend as much money heating your premises and may be able to make significant savings in the long-run.

Of course, you may be concerned that looking after your sedum roof will take up valuable time. After all, you need to use all the time at your disposal to run your business successfully.

There’s no need to worry.
