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.
Doing your gardening on the roof also helps put off water from the rain. So you can count on your garden plants to soak in some of that rain runoff before the water level rises. Aside from rain runoff your roof garden can also act as an insulator. Your plants will be the ones to absorb the daily dose of sunlight. Rooftop gardening can also help promote a temporary shelter for birds. They may be able to dwell in this area for the time being.
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.
