Sedum Roof Irrigation System


Because our roof slopes at 22 degrees we are now having to fit a “leaky pipe” irrigation system so that in particularly long dry spells we can give the sedum some water during it’s initial settling in period for a couple of hours at a time.

Here is where the water pipe comes out onto the roof and branches off to the two sides of the roof. The grey plastic thing is a valve to allow the water in the pipes to fully drain when the supply is turned off.

The white plastic clips have turned out to be useless so will be replaced with some stainless steel ones before the sedum goes on, hopefully next Tuesday. 

Hopefully we will be able to recyle water from wet periods to water the sedum rather than use mains water which we did for this test.
