The sun sets over 800 square metres of newly installed sedum roof on Aldi’s latest addition to its fast growing list of UK retail outlets.

The green roof shares space with a solar pv installation making this one of the greenest retail outlets in the area.

The addition of Aquaten to the green roof build-up means the sedum blanket doesn’t require an expensive irrigation system because the highly water absorbent material will provide sufficient moisture whist also ensuring the roof fulfils its objective of attenuating water in an increasingly urbanised area.

  • No irrigation required because of inclusion of Aquaten passive irrigation system

  • Aquaten helps sedum blanket survive increasingly dry periods.

  • Aquaten helps achieve planning objective of attenuating water.
