Because the age of high rise buildings, apartments and condominiums has come, most people don’t have access to wide backyards to make their own garden anymore. Sometimes even new homeowners try to maximize their lot space by creating a bigger house and lose the idea of a lawn or backyard altogether.
For these cases, having a garden is still possible by creating a roof garden. Most of the time, if you live in a condominium or multi-storey apartment, they allow you a space on the roof to hang your laundry. You can convert this space to also be a garden of sorts.
Having a roof top garden can delay storm water run off and is also said to reduce some carbon emissions. You will want to make sure your roof is in good condition before starting the garden. Have a company like Allstate Roofing come fix any repairs that need to be made before the garden is started.. Another benefit is when a roof garden covers the entire roof, it is believed to reduce the heat compared to the usual tar and gravel roofs and also help reduce the urban heat island effect. Aside from that, having a roof garden is like having your own secret place where in you can relax or meditate or stay there and be at peace.
