This summer, garden studios have become increasingly popular. With warmer temperatures and longer nights homeowners have been looking to make the most of their outside space. What’s more, with many employees working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people have been looking for that extra bit of space. As a result, many have considered installing a summer house or garden studio.
With the rise in interest, we’ve seen an increase in enquiries for the supply and installation of our sedum mats on domestic summer houses and garden studios alike. We’ve had the pleasure of visiting some lovely properties to create a green roof that adds a natural finish to the garden structure.
Here are some examples of projects we’ve worked on this summer:
A garden studio nestled in at the end of the garden
A new build property with a flat roof above the kitchen area and garden studio
Benefits of adding a sedum green roof to a garden studio
Sedum roofs are a great all year-round option for garden offices or garden studios, as well as flat roofs in general to that matter. They’re aesthetically pleasing to the eye but also provide improved insulation, absorb rainwater and attract wildlife. In particular, butterflies and bees which benefit the garden itself.
By adding a sedum roof to the design of a garden studio, the structure is more likely to blend naturally into the garden and the surrounding landscape. For many customers this is one of the deciding factors. A green roof is a nice to see when looking out over your garden from the main property. It’s also nice for your neighbours to look at too!
