Adding plant life and vegetation to the roof of your garden building can help to filter out harmful toxins from pollution. The plant leaves trap harmful dust particles in the air. With the almost constant cycle of evaporation the air temperature can be cooled. This results in your sedum roof reducing the amount of smog and improving the quality of the air around your property. In addition to soaking up pollution the plants in green roofs naturally absorb carbon dioxide![/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space height=”60″][vc_single_image image=”8154″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][dt_fancy_title title=”INCREASED ENERGY EFFICIENCY” title_align=”left” title_size=”h2″ title_color=”accent” separator_style=”disabled”][vc_empty_space height=”60″][vc_column_text]With the effects on the environment, recent hikes in energy prices and a lot of political and social focus being applied to conserving energy, it’s easy to see why improving energy efficiency is such a top priority for individuals and businesses. A sedum roof could help you achieve just that. By installing a sedum roof on your garden office or studio, you could make big reductions to energy usage. A sedum roof can actually reduce the loss of heat through the roof. The layers of vegetation will provide additional insulation to your building. This means that in the winter you won’t have to spend as much money on heating bills, leading to big savings.

A sedum roof can also help prevent your roof from becoming too hot during the summer. Overheating usually raises the temperature in your building. This is not the case for properties with a sedum roof.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space height=”60″][vc_single_image image=”8156″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_empty_space][dt_fancy_title title=”GREAT HABITAT & FOOD FOR WILDLIFE” title_align=”left” title_size=”h2″ title_color=”accent” separator_style=”disabled”][vc_empty_space height=”60″][vc_column_text]One of the many benefits of installing a living green roof is the appeal it will have on wildlife. They create new habitats and food sources for mini-beasts and birds, aid conservation of endangered species and increase biodiversity. Sedum is great for having a particularly long flowering season producing both pollen and nectar throughout the warmer months.

They have shown to promote the growth of other wildflowers that bees and butterflies also love.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image=”8300″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
