Rooftop Design / September 9, 2018 / Juan M. Tate
It is not required that you use only one method to build your rooftop farm. You can mix and match any of these so you can maximize your space as well as your crop yields. From San Francisco to New York City rooftop wind turbines are hitting the home front. Rooftop wind turbines are being installed on both homes and businesses at an unprecedented rate due to several factors including the desire to save electricity cut down owns dependency upon fossil fuels and as a visible symbol that one is doing their part to go green.
A less obvious issue when deciding on putting up a rooftop wind generator may be any obstructions current or future that could block the full wind from getting to the generator. Trees other buildings hillsides or even large vehicles can deflect the wind away from the turbine. If the rooftop is inside a city filled with buildings the wind path can become quite tricky as it may bounce from one structure to the next causing turbulence and an inconsistent flow.
Usage of Recyclable Materials Recyclable materials like plastic containers doors frames bricks and wood scraps can be used to start a rooftop farm. You just need to assemble them neatly so that you use them to grow crops. Usage of Greenhouse If you can afford it you can also use a greenhouse to start a farm in your rooftop and build a vertical farm. A vertical farm on your rooftop would come out to be very beneficial as you will be able to produce a lot of crops while using only a small amount of space.
