Starting Your Rooftop Garden Plan

P Sdesign17

So you have structured your dream rooftop garden in your mind, and now it is time to clear the path for implementation. Knowing where to begin can be a daunting task, so here are a few tips to help get you on your way to building your own little piece of green urban paradise.

1. Check with your builder or contractor to see if your roof can hold the pressure of the soil, containers etc.

2. Take safety measures by installing fences and miniature shelters in order to protect the plants from falling objects (if you are surrounded by taller buildings for example).

3. Start researching on the type of plants you can grow and talk to a specialist about maintenance. Installing sprinklers is a great idea, especially during summer. We wish you a fun time planning and developing the perfect roof garden and if you need a hand from the experts, make sure to call Plant Specialists!
