Rooftop Design / September 8, 2018 / Juan M. Tate
Why get married on a rooftop? The view! Many roof venues overlook a marvelous vista. In the country you will see fields and flowers and perhaps a river or mountains. In the city a rooftop wedding is especially nice in the evening when the view will be lit up with thousands of twinkling lights below. Another reason to look for an elevated site in the city is that they may be your best bet to get a clear view of the blue sky above. In addition most cities have rooftops which boast beautiful gardens - sort of like a little slice of paradise hidden in the concrete jungle.
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.
With the presence of plants on your roof you can also expect these natural beings to help improve the quality of air around you. It will also be able to help lessen the release of carbon monoxide. All the more reason for you to go into gardening so that you may help contribute in helping save the environment. For those who are really not into creating a roof garden design on their own can provide job openings for a lot of people who can do such. This applies to those who are into landscaping construction etc.
