Green roof maintenance example

Green roof maintenance is often overlooked. People either think their green roof simply doesn’t need TLC or green roofs can be just be neglected.

Another common belief when a green roof is struggling is that it is simply a lost cause. Fear NOT.

At TUGC we recommend carrying out maintenance on a bi-annual basis.

Below is an example of a green roof we maintain and the difference before and after maintenance.

  • Improve and protect your asset
  • Maintain high quality vegetation
  • Keep vegetation healthy
  • Remove dry and dead thatch to reduce fire risk
  • Keep drainage channels clear
  • Maintain water attenuation to reduce flood risk
  • Improve valuable wildlife habitat areas
  • Inspect drainage outlets and other roof features such as PV panels
