Why Install a Living Roof?

green roof benefitsGreen Roof Benefits

A living green roof is the perfect way to bring colour and life into any environment. It can be used to enhance rural living without the need for spending hours in the garden and is ideal for disguising conspicuous structures like sheds and bird tables. The same can be said for an urban setting. It’s the easiest way to bring a bit of the countryside into the city, great for roof gardens, garages, and offices.
