HAPPY SPRING from Roof Top Sedums!


FINALLY!!! A breath of fresh air and blooms are spreading across our region. We have been patiently waiting, like you, for Spring to arrive and show its wonderful beauty. With the transition of the season, we are working diligently to prepare and grow several unique and exciting LiveRoof® Hybrid Green Roof System projects. We customize each and every project based on the needs of the site, the design intent, and the Owner requests. Stay tuned to learn more about these beautiful and functional green roofs as the season progresses!
Spring Green Roof Maintenance

Be sure to begin spring maintenance on your green roof. Now is the time to look at the overall health of your green roof, collect a soil sample to test the fertility, and look for any pesky weeds. Since last season was so hot and dry in our region, there may be some bare spots on your green roof that could use some cuttings or plugs. If you need advice on what or how to plant, just let us know. We also have a great selection of the toughest green roof plant varieties. If you are strapped for time to maintain your green roof this season, we do offer maintenance services. We would be happy to help keep your green roof looking beautiful.

Sedums and More!

Even though our name is Roof Top Sedums, we do offer a variety of plants to choose from to add to the beauty and function of your green roof. We know sedums are still the toughest and most durable green roof plants for our region to create unmatched coverage. This season, we are adding several varieties of wildflowers and natives to our plant selection to increase functional and creative green roof design options.

The seedlings for Roof Top Sedums were planted in 2006, when co-owner Teresa Nelson collaborated on a green roof project with LiveRoof® LLC in Michigan. This collaboration led Teresa and her sister, Roxanne Nagel, to fill a void in the growing green roof industry, and Roof Top Sedums LLC began providing custom grown green roof vegetation for the LiveRoof® Hybrid Green Roof System from their family farm in Davenport, Iowa. Recently, they added the LiveWall® Vertical Green Wall System to their product line and are excited to keep growing and growing!
