New modular or sedum green trays for Sedum Roofs the S-Pod - What is it?
A modular Sedum System, or S-Pod for short, is a new method of laying Sedum on your roof or outbuildings. The sedum is grown in small pockets moulded into a sedum tray. There is no need to lay a drainage layer or substrate as this is all included in the module. Simply waterproof your surface and lay the pods on. Full instructions can be given.

Sedum for Your Roof
Once laid, which, once the drainage layer is in place and the substrate layer laid, it is simply a matter of rolling the mats out like turf, there is very little maintenance. In the first year if it exceptionally dry a little watering may be necessary but once established these plants are very succulent so should always look lush and green. There is no need to cut them but sometimes a little trim is necessary, simply throw the cuttings back onto the roof and they will root. The Sedum grows horizontally rather than vertically thus entwine within each other, giving a good strong mat and lush appearance.
Even a bird house can
have a Sedum Roof!
Measure your roof size and calculate how many square metres of the Sedum mats you need. Contact us and we will verify what you need and deliver the Sedum to your door. Let us know if there is any problems with access. We can also help you calculate the right quantity.
Roll the mats onto your substrate on your roof and cut any mats necessary to size with a small knife.
Just bed the mat down and leave!
Do not leave the mats rolled up for any length of time before putting them on the roof as this will damage the plants. Always best to have your timing right and let us know exactly when the roof is ready for the plants.
The alternative method is to buy trays of plug plants planting these directly into the substrate. The only problem with this is that there will be more maintenance until the plants have fully grown and made a dense mat. It is more economical to buy the mats ready grown or use the Modular S.Pod system. If at a later date any patches form then plug plants can be used to patch.
The S-Pod or Sedum Green Tray is the simplest and easiest method as it is so simple to install. We often have sedum roof offers so keep an eye out for these as they change all the time.
