An instant modular Green Roof

Pitched against some of the highest-quality roofing products, M-Tray® modular green roof system beat off all competition to secure the coveted title of Best Roofing System or Product in the 2020 Build It awards. 

The M-Tray® has also won the award for ‘Best Green Innovation’ at the 2021 Green Home Awards.

What makes the M-Tray® green roof unique?

Mature, established vegetation.

Click-together trays create seamless connection.

Easy to transport and install.

Specially-mixed substrate for longevity of plant life.

100mm deep cavities for healthy roots.

Optimum drainage means stronger plants.

No sharp edges or mess meaning minimum disruption to plants, deck structure and inhabitants.


Biodiversity is becoming more popular for urban greening schemes as it has been proven that a large mix of native English flowering species is the best way to attract and promote wildlife such as bees, butterflies, other insects and birds into these roof spaces.

Countryside In The City

By replicating what is happening out in the fields on urban roofs we can help to replace what has been lost and improve the environment.

Unique Design Tray ​Design

Module measures 500 x 500 x 100mm
4 x units make up exactly 1sq metre making  estimating far easier
Carefully spaced drainage holes ensure modules retain water for longer, allowing plants to absorb more rainfall, increasing attenuation and delaying discharge into outlets
Design ensures even greater water retention at edges of module, preventing sedum from dying back at the edges.
Stronger plant growth at the edges creates a more seamless layer of vegetation when the modules are connected
Four gently ridged hand grips are positioned to enable installers to carry each module easier

Smooth edges & connecting bracket
The connecting brackets are designed to give a tight connection, with the minimum gap between each module
The joint is only 6mm so the plants will grow over it quickly, making it disappear in ultra-quick time
The corners of the modules are rounded and smooth, so no sharp edges (which might puncture the membrane beneath) are present – this also makes handling the trays easier and the edges can be mounted onto Wallbarn pedestals if additional height is required

Trims & Edging
100mm aluminium edge trims and connectors fit neatly onto the sides of the modules. Fixings are designed to slot together neatly although they are not always necessary.
