Planting our Roof Garden

21st July 2021

Our Anniversary Building's rooftop rooms have wonderful views across Oxford. We have been preparing the rooftop gardens so that we can enjoy them as well as the outlook.

After months of planning the roof was fully waterproofed and the lightweight composite of hydroleca, gravel and soil was in place ready for plants to go in. We chose plants adapted to altitude and exposure, including miscanthus and festuca grasses, aromatic santolina, sea hollies, hardy geraniums and sedums. We hope they enjoy the location and settle in well!
