Applications & Installation

Boughton Extensive substrate is designed for the planting of sedum schemes. It should be laid at a minimum depth of 80mm and directly onto a drainage board.

Boughton Extensive Green Roof Substrate meets and exceeds all present GRO guidelines. The depth of substrate is determined by the planting scheme and the weight loading capability of the roof which must be assessed by a qualified structural engineer.
