From field to roof

Topping out has been taken to an entirely new level at EDG Property’s Sandfields Barn, Luddington, with the installation of a green roof to the contemporary glazed link.

From field to roof in the same weekend, the lush pre-grown vegetation mat utilises a mix of sixteen varieties of sedum plants. All responsibly sourced and sustainably grown in the UK, the sedum is drought resistant and low maintenance.

Sustainability conscious, EDG Property’s Neil Edginton commented, “To stay true to the picturesque rural location, we felt the investment in the roof was essential. From afar the contemporary link will simply merge in to the landscape.”

Sandfields Barn sits at the entrance to Luddington, on the Luddington Road, and EDG Property is mindful to deliver a residence that the village can be proud of. The brick barn and stone barn have stood for years in a state of disrepair, without the original link, providing even more reason to ensure the end product sympathetically blends in with the surroundings.

“We are looking forward to watching the plantation mature and change with the seasons,” said Neil.
