Domestic Pitched Roofs

Two things are particularly important with regard to pitched green roofs: a reliable and permanently functional anti-slip system and fast-rooting vegetation in the form of pre-cultivated vegetation mats. Typical tried and tested mechanical solutions involve either the use of a bearer and sill system which transfers the shear force to the roof eaves, or alternatively a netting and sill solution, which instead transfers the shear force across the roof ridge.   The choice of system will very much depend on the shape of the roof and whether it is mono- or duopitch.
