Rooftop Design / August 22, 2018 / Juan M. Tate.
Critics of rooftop wind turbines say that they simply dont work or dont work as well as advertised. The critics are right in some instances and that is why the consumer needs to know what they are getting into and what to watch out for before investing in a rooftop wind turbine. Some of the factors that will influence the output of the rooftop wind turbine include the design itself (horizontal or vertical axis) the kilowatt rating of the generator where the rooftop wind turbine is placed the angle or pitch of the roof how much wind the region provides and any obstructions that may block the wind.
Rooftop gardens are quite beautiful when developed the right way. Other than that here are a few more reasons why people (most especially gardeners) work into this kind of activity. Gardening up on the roof (whether it would be the planting of vegetables flowers or both) provides a means to promote the production of vegetables or plants within the city. So if youre into growing rooftop vegetable gardens or is just into flower gardening then this can be a means of lessening some costs on your part as you will rarely need to buy certain goods at the market should you run out of these.
The benefit that can be acquired with rooftop farming is similar to the benefits that can be gained from other farming practices such as vertical farming and urban farming. Rooftop farming can possibly be considered as urban farming since urban farming seems to cover a much larger scale of farming practice in urban areas. What makes rooftop farming unique is that even ordinary citizens can take advantage of it so long as they have a rooftop space to use. In addition the materials and tools needed for rooftop farming can range from simple wooden crates to farming rails as well as ceramic and herb pots to complex ones with hydroponic systems. Here are some simple rooftop farming ideas that you can possibly consider.
There are times when space becomes limited. And for some people (especially residents that are housed in backyard less houses) sometimes an empty roof can become an outlet for other leisurely interests (can also recreated into an outdoor space for accommodating guests) or hobbys. Now as for gardeners the top area of their apartment or any other high-rise theyre in can then be converted into rooftop gardens. There are a lot of rooftops that are rarely developed into something more useful thats why a lot of people are getting more creative and more resourceful when it comes to space constraints (thus the evolution of green roofs for healthy cities).
