Three eco homes, with sedum roofs – grassy, moss-type vegetation – have been built within 300-year walls in a converted hotel car park in the hamlet of Edford, East Devon. (From thisisexeter)
“The sedum roof acts as a green duvet for the house,” said Jeremy. “It keeps the interior insulated,” said Topsham property developer Jeremy Crowther. “The sedum also absorbs and collects rainwater. Any left over is drained into a mini pumping station underground that protects the site against flooding.”
The roofs are just one of the many environmental features to the homes.
