A Grand Green Roof for a Christchurch Home

One green roof, 13 species, 115 plants and only 6 hours to install.

For this project, Natural Habitats was proud to receive the following 2021 Landscapes of Distinction Awards:

SILVER - Commercial Construction up to $50,000

SILVER - Commercial Horticulture (Open project value and property size) SILVER - Commercial Maintenance up to 5000 m2

Working alongside Kamo Marsh Landscape Architects, we were appointed to design and build a green roof that would add a stunning point of difference to the home. The primary benefit being the view as you ascend the stairs from the main atrium and from the home office.

Small in size and big on innovation, this green roof reveals that they fit in perfectly in the residential environment as well as commercial.

Our team enjoyed bringing this bespoke project to life, growing in the plants off-site to ensure perfection at the time of install. The highlight being a fully functional green roof in less than 6 hours.

Plants were carefully selected for the Christchurch climate, being low to no maintenance with a thoughtful irrigation system. Natives and exotics make up a mix of 13 beautifully textured species with 115 specimens.

Although weight is a natural concern of green roofs, our eco pillow system is lightweight requiring no extra structural changes and has the added benefit of an ideal growing media for plants.
