Rooftop Design / September 9, 2018 / Juan M. Tate
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.
Usage of Pots You can purchase ceramic pots or those which are made especially for herbs and small crops. These can be used indoors as well as outdoors. Usage of Wooden Crates Wooden crates can be used so that you can layer them up to appear like a vertical garden. You can plant different crops that do not require to be planted deep in the ground. You can also plant green vegetables. These crates can be those that are used for storing and delivering fruits in markets or can be as low as 1 foot in height.
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).
