Lindum SedumPlus is a pure sedum mat, grown sustainably in the UK, it comes with sixteen stunning varieties of sedum to combine drought tolerance with extended interest and colour throughout the growing season.
SedumPlus is the ideal choice for lightweight extensive green roofs, it is drought tolerant and therefore needs only a shallow substrate layer. It is also suited to situations that need low growing plants and minimal maintenance.
The sixteen varieties of sedum offer a huge variety of colour and interest, and enhance biodiversity. Ranging in colour from green through to vibrant reds, oranges, purples and browns, the plants also offer many different leaf types and flowers, resulting in a blend of beautiful textures when planted together.
Minimum substrate depth is 30mm although depths of 50mm-75mm will allow for stronger and more attractive growth.
Lindum SedumPlus is grown at our nursery in the Vale of York allowing for fresh harvest and rapid delivery from field to roof.
Green roof systems provide many benefits, but with their exposed position and their shallow root zone, it is vital that they are irrigated.
Access have been supplying green roof solutions for over 20 years, and have considerable expertise in the design and supply of green roof watering systems. Access can provide advice to architects and contractors on the design and installation of systems.
Sedum type roofs often only need to be watered during very dry weather, which is beyond the capabilites of most irrigation controllers. To solve this problem, Access have developed the 'DroughtGuard' controller, which is designed only to water when there has been a prolonged period without rainfall.
