Green Roofing Guide


Green Roofing, do you have a garden and just want an extra quiet secluded area to look over the scenic landscape around you.

Or maybe you crave the much missed green landscape after moving in to the city, watch the videos below we hope you find the solution.


Can I install a green roof on any type of waterproof system?


When you choose a GrufeKit green roof kit you can lay it on any waterproof membrane.

Many of our GrufeKit’s have been installed on the following popular waterproofing systems:

  • Single Ply
  • GRP Fibreglass
  • EPDM Rubber
  • Felt
  • Concrete

Whatever waterproof system you use you can use GrufeKit to easily install a beautiful green roof on top.

Do you have to mow a green roof?


It depends on the plants used on the roof.  We recommend using low maintenance plants unless you intend to spend lots of time on the roof.  Our most popular GrufeTile is Sedum which are a ground covering alpine plant that grows 20 to 30 mm high and therefore does not require cutting.  We have seen clients install a grass roof with a robotic mower so we’ve shown a picture for your interest!

 Can I cut my Grufetile to fit my roof?

In short:  Yes.  The modules can be cut down with a hand saw or grinder; the cut edge then
needs to be faced into the rest of the green roof so that it’s supported by the next module.
