Our Story

The Green Roof Company was borne out of a feeling of responsibility and a passion to do something to help mitigate the environmental impact of climate change and the loss of biodiversity in our towns and cities.

We decided that by offering cost effective, nature based solutions we could achieve our goal and help others too. We are passionate about turning grey roofs to green and we spent many months researching the growers and suppliers of green roof products around the world and we feel we have found the perfect partner in Sempergreen®.

Sempergreen® have 25 years’ experience, growing plants for green roofs and over these years have tested their products extensively and we believe their products are second to none. We are privileged to be Sempergreen’s® first accredited UK & Ireland website offering all their quality products, most from our UK stockholding. 

Why choose Sempergreen® products?

  • Sempergreen® products are of the highest quality, with 25 years of growing experience under their belt.
  • Upon delivery, the green roof is 95% covered in sedum plants, so you have an instant green roof.
  • Sempergreen® always delivers directly from stock from its own nurseries, which means delivery times are short.
  • The green products are produced completely free of pesticides and therefore make a positive contribution to the living environment of bees and butterflies.
  • All vegetation for green roofs is grown according to the FLL guidelines.
