Green roofs have grown in popularity over the last ten years, due to improvements in system availability, greater knowledge of green roof requirements and successful green roof installations across the UK. They are now recognised as one of the most efficient methods of ‘urbangreening’ amongst commercial developments within towns and cities and even the more adventurous amongst us are converting our outbuildings and garages to green roofs. Green roofs offer developers an excellent solution for assisting in the management of storm water and reducing the ecological impact of a project. Green roofs have many benefits including their positive impact on biodiversity providing much needed habitats for birds and insects. All Green-tree Roof Garden Substrates are manufactured to current FLL (Forschungsgesellschaft Landschaftsentwicklung Landschaftbau’s) Guidelines 2008 ensuring consideration is given to fire regulations set out by FLL.
