CHARACTERISTICS The 400m 2 surface area over storage buildings and an underground car park was covered with a 2m-deep tree pit which was waterproofed and tanked for a courtyard finish.

Lightweight aggregates and a soil layer were then added in preparation for tree planting.

SPECIAL PROPERTIES Waterproofing was bonded to the substrate, with sedum restraint bars installed at intervals to accommodate the planting grid which was loose laid. Lightweight sedum substrate was then shovelled in before an Icopal Sedum mat of alpine flowers was stapled on.
