Living Walls & Green Roofs

Living Walls & Green Roofs

Living walls and green roofs are an innovative way to introduce nature into urban environments, and are becoming ever-popular with offices, schools and apartment blocks throughout the world, both internally and externally.

Here at Atlantes Landscapes, we bring living wall and green roof construction to customers throughout Devon and Exeter, including Tiverton and Newton Abbot. As BALI-accredited landscapers, our passion for the environment and our dedication to exceptional workmanship mean that you receive a finished living environment that fits your building and your brief.

The benefits:
Green walls and roofs soften the appearance of any building, blending man-made materials with natural, living foliage. But their advantages are not purely aesthetic – there are also multiple environmental benefits to eco-roofs, including:

  • Improving air quality
  • Reducing urban temperatures
  • Limiting rainwater runoff
  • Insulating against heat, cold and noise
  • Supporting biodiversity
  • Improving mood and mental wellbeing
  • Increasing property value
  • Types of living roof

There are multiple types of living roof to choose from, depending on the look and purpose you’re aiming for, each with their own maintenance requirements.

Extensive: Using mostly sedum, mosses, herbs and grasses, this is the most low-cost, low-maintenance option. Sedum roofs are hugely beneficial to local biodiversity by creating an ecological landscape.

Semi-intensive: Combine elements of a roof garden and ecological landscape with sedum, mosses, herbs and shrubs. It therefore has the dual benefit of being a beautiful outdoor space with benefits to wildlife.

Intensive: Designed to create an area for public use, so more focused on constructing a garden space. Larger plants are generally used, such as shrubs and trees. While it has greater initial cost than the other options, it’s a more versatile option with greater amenity value.

In 2009 Robin Williams and Associates Ltd designed a large private garden in Bolney Sussex, the hard and soft landscaping elements were put out to tender to three landscape contractors who we knew from previous experience to be capable of producing the very high standard of finish required by both myself and the client.

Paul Bentley was successful with his submission; this decision was based on both cost and his ability to achieve the desired end result. The project commences in November 2009 and was completed in November 2010, within the timeframe initially planned.

The work on this site required the construction of retaining walls, substantial areas of paving, the construction of both steps and terraces, and the paving and detail for the surrounding area for a new swimming pool. All work was carried out in a professional, competent and courteous manner.

The overall quality of the work was excellent with the finished project completed to a very high standard.

I have known and worked with Paul Bentley for many years and know him to be professional, reliable and extremely competent and the quality of his work is exceptional.
