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.

This was our first project working with Paul and we have been impressed with the service we have received.

Both Paul and his staff paid great attention to detail and if we were ever unclear about how our design should be interpreted they asked the right questions, took time to discuss them and paid attention to the small details throughout. The foreman was always on site when I arrived and kept in good contact with me so that we made good use of my site visits, with Paul being on hand whenever needed. As a company we take our responsibilities towards health and safety very seriously and it was good to work with a company that paid the attention to this that we would expect.

Overall the project went extremely smoothly, to schedule and with any last minute touches quickly and efficiently resolved. We would be happy to work with Paul and his team again in the future.
