Rooftop Design / August 23, 2018 / Juan M. Tate.
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).
The style of a rooftop wedding can range in formality just like any other type of wedding would. In general a very full ballgown style wedding dress will feel like a bit much for a roof so if you want to wear something very fancy select a beaded gown with a more slim silhouette and make it dressier with a crystal necklace earring and bracelet set. A great idea for any outdoor ceremony is to select a veil which has a crystal beaded edge; not only will it be a beautiful complement to the crystal bridal necklace but the weight will help keep the veil from flying around too much in the breeze. Carefully inspect the surface of the rooftop site before selecting your wedding shoes and if it is at all bumpy or uneven opt for flats instead of high heels.
Rooftop gardens will help keep your house cooler naturally especially if you have a dark or black roof. Dark colors absorb and radiate heat. You could opt for a simpler garden consisting of potted plants or turn your roof into a garden. According to the City of Chicago turning your roof into the garden is known as a green roof system in which the garden will be separated from the hard roof and will be equipped to drain and supply nutrients and you may even consider installing an irrigation system in this type of garden. They suggest when planning out your rooftop garden that you should follow these four steps.
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.
