Urban Greening Products
The Urban Greening Company Products list is intended as a guide to the type of installations and services we can offer, from Green roofs and Blue roofs to rain gardens and living walls. Obviously no one eco project is the same and our project team will take each installation or request and fully plan and specify it before undertaking any proposed greening work. We can advise on regulations, planning and impact to ensure your living wall, green roof or rain garden project not only goes as smoothly as possible but that it also fulfills the need you intended.
There are many types of green roof, including intensive (roof gardens), and extensive (low maintenance green roofs) including sedum roofs and biodiverse roofs. Green roofs are internationally placed in three different ‘types’: Of course there is some cross over between the categories.
- Intensive – parks and gardens including Urban Agriculture
- Semi-intensive – garden style green roofs
- Extensive– natural low maintenance green roofs
- Blue Green Roof combination– green roof and blue roof technologies united to maximise water storage
- Biosolar Green Roof– where solar energy and green roofs are combined to provide renewable energy and biodiversity
We can advise of the most appropriate type of green roof or green roofs for your building, whether it is new build or retro-fit. We make sure that every green roof is designed to meet functional and aesthetic requirements and uses the best quality materials and vegetation.

No matter what your budget or scale The Urban Greening Company can design, install and maintain a stunning living wall for you, inside or out.
Living walls of lush foliage bring bland spaces to life; whether installed as floor to ceiling feature walls or stand alone pieces of art Living walls, or “green walls”, create a visual impact anywhere and can transform unimpressive, functional spaces and walls into an attractive vertical landscape. More than this, living walls have been shown to offer major health benefits too: cleaning the indoor air, balancing a room’s humidity and creating a general sense of well being amongst many others.

So many gardens and driveways are being paved over and this is resulting in significantly reduced natural percolation of rainfall into the water table.
The standard solution to surface run-off has always been to create a series of pipework and divert often contaminated rain into local streams and rivers that often can’t cope with the increased levels of rain. If we channel this water into vegetated areas we can create a series of habitats that can often be linked to create natural wildlife corridors.
Blue roofs are the latest addition to the eco planners toolkit. Blue Roofs are a non-vegetated system that detains and controls storm water for a variety of scenarios. Blue roofs are less costly than green roofs and can be applied to areas where green roofs are not sustainable.
Utilising some of the latest Super Absorbent Fibre roofing material we can provide sustainability benefits through major reductions in rainwater runoff to rooftop cooling.
