What makes Blackdown Green Roofs Different?

Blackdown Green Roofs were born out of a true passion for plants. With expertise in horticulture and plant development, there has been continual research into important areas such as plant density, species co-habitation, flowering times, substrate types/depths, water consumption etc.  This has established a diverse range of green roof configurations.

With a range of suitable hardy succulents, native and non-native plants commonly in cultivation, and the ability to contract grow additional species, advice is available on the most appropriate planting strategy for the project – tailoring the green roof to suit the brief, not compromising the brief to suit a limited range of green roof plant options.



Experienced Contracts teams oversee each project, delivering a high quality installation in compliance with the project programme and on budget through identification of the optimum installation method.

Tailored maintenance programmes are compiled to ensure the long-term success of green roof installations – showing the same care for our plants on the roof as we do during cultivation.
