Client: Wild About Roofs
Cannon Hill, a residential property in London, recently transformed an extension it built to house a swimming pool and changing rooms by adding a mixed herb and lavender green roof.
Wild About Roofs, who designed and installed the green roof, commissioned Boningale GreenSky to provide a variety of lavender, rosemary and thyme plants. Unlike many commercial wildflower roofs, these larger plants were supplied as small pots to provide instant impact for a highly visible site.
The end result is stunning and provides the home owners with a visually appealing outlook, as the pool house is overlooked by the main house. It also makes a positive impact on local biodiversity because for years to come, as the green roof flourishes it will provide a valuable food source for pollinators.
Boningale GreenSky also helped with the supply of the substrate making sure it had the correct nutrition level and water holding capacity for the plants, in particular for the larger herbs like Rosemary and Lavender, to thrive in the long term.
