The Benefits of Rooftop Gardens

The creation of a roof garden is an excellent option for anyone living or working in an urban, or built-up area, who understands the value of having their own readily accessible green space. You’ll already know that a rooftop garden reduces the negative impact of development, while simultaneously providing environmental, economic and social benefits.

Rooftop gardens help to purify the air, reduce the urban heat island effect, create biodiverse habitats, reduce and stop stormwater runoff and water attenuation. There are even urban rooftop farms being set up as a valuable source of food in our ever-increasingly over-populated towns and cities. And the benefits don’t stop there. An open, green space is of great advantage to us humans too, providing beautiful places to relax and enjoy the environment. Such spaces are recognised as contributing to our physical and mental wellbeing, so creating a rooftop garden is a win-win solution all round.

You imagine it.  We construct it.

We know that imagination is no barrier to building a rooftop garden. Our comprehensive expertise extends all the way from green roofs, brown roofs, biodiversity roofs, to intensive and extensive roofs. We have constructed rooftop gardens from podium level, all the way up to the 22nd floor. Working this high up within central London is not without its logistical challenges, we are more than ready to face these challenges. With just-in-time deliveries with FORS-compliant vehicles. We have come up with some ingenious solutions to over the years to solve loadout issues and distribution.

We know that the build-up of layers in the construction of roof gardens is as important, if not more so, than those on ground level. That’s why we work with you, the client, to ensure that correct makeup is installed in your garden to suit your planting requirements. We provide advice on the best type of pedestal or rail systems for paving, decking, water features and planters. We work with irrigation specialists to ensure that a suitable system is installed to operate in the most economical and water-efficient manner.

All we need is your imagination. You imagine it. We construct it.
