National Shed Week Finalists are Announced    

I’m very pleased to see that amongst the finalists for the 2013 Shed of the Year competition are at least two sheds with green roofs.

the stencil shed with green roofSyd’s Stencil Shed in Malmsbury, Wiltshire boasts a green roof with sedums and grasses.  Apparently Mrs Stencil Shed was adamant that no planting space was to be lost when the shed was built.   In that case, a green roof was the only logical solution.

 

 

 

 

eco shed with green roofThe Eco Hoose Bike Shed in Camden has a wild flower roof.  The owner, Marcus Shields wanted to avoid looking out of his house window on to an ugly shed roof and so he has planted sedums, wild flowers and spring bulbs on top of his home made shed roof.

The winner of the Shed of the Year Competition will be announced on 4th July 2013.  Fingers crossed it will be one of the green roofers.

In the meantime, if you would like to see how easy it is to add a green roof on to a shed.  Watch our video.
