Rooftop Garden – a rooftop garden is any type of garden created on top of a building. As expected with any open space there are many varieties of rooftop gardens and motivations for installing them.
Rooftop gardens can be beautiful, relaxing sanctuaries with pergolas/gazebos, arbors, leisure areas with outdoor furniture and garden lighting and can be designed with custom planters, decks and patios.
In addition verticalgardens, green walls, landscapes lighting or an Asian garden design can add a unique and personalized look to your rooftop garden. Rooftop gardens are one of the most flexible ways to add living space in the city. Here are a few inspirations of the types of rooftop retreats that New York Plantings Garden Design can build for you:
Container gardens, where garden plants are grown in pots and planters, are also a popular rooftop addition.
Another type of rooftop garden often called a green roof or living roof, can partially or completely cover a rooftop with plants with appropriate layering of a waterproof lining an irrigation system and drainage.
A great resource for both residential and commercial buildings, New York Plantings Garden Design is ready to discuss the benefits of your rooftop “Going Green.” Additionally, green roofs can be helpful in managing energy costs, helping to control building temperatures and they can also be designed to serve as a source of home grown foods.
