Grand Designs Project

Posted 30 Sep 2014

We were honoured to be asked by Patrick Bradley Architects to grow a living roof for a project featuring on Channel 4's Grand Designs programme. The client had a specific request for a native blend of Irish wild grass with a 20% blend of perennial wild flowers to make the different roofs blend into the stunning countryside. We set to work, germinating and propagating the correct species and turning them into a roll out blanket for an instant green roof installed in September. The use of building materials in this project is very unique and will certainly make a very interesting watch indeed.
