Rooftop Design / September 9, 2018 / Juan M. Tate
Homes and facilities with little to no space for farming and gardening is something common to urban places. In urban places people have learned to adapt their desire to start farming or gardening through different methods that allow them to start planting even with just little space. If you have a space to spare in your rooftop you too can start rooftop farming in your home or office. Rooftop farming is a practice that lets people make use of any rooftop space that they have for farming as well as gardening. Different crops can be grown depending on the space that you have. You can plant herbs and small vegetables if you have a small to moderate sized space. If you have bigger space you can also employ vertical farming on your rooftop.
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).
Rooftop gardens are quite beautiful when developed the right way. Other than that here are a few more reasons why people (most especially gardeners) work into this kind of activity. Gardening up on the roof (whether it would be the planting of vegetables flowers or both) provides a means to promote the production of vegetables or plants within the city. So if youre into growing rooftop vegetable gardens or is just into flower gardening then this can be a means of lessening some costs on your part as you will rarely need to buy certain goods at the market should you run out of these.
