The Green Roof – Sedum Grass Roof
England Crescent, Heanor, Derbyshire
Clients required a new green grass roof, which would be looked at from the garden level and from the house windows.
Structural engineer drawings set out fro the new roof to be formed upton the existing garage. A new wall on a new foundation was formed. New oak posts to the rear gave a timber storage shed.
The roof was then formed with timber joists, plywood, EPDM. The Sedum grass roof was laid to the roof. A steel trim around the roof seperated a stone detail for decoration. The steel trim perforated edges allowed drainage. All water was connected to water butt containers for re-use.
