Not too long ago, we featured a post on our site entitled 38 Garden Design Ideas Turning Your Home Into a Peaceful Refuge, which turned out to be quite popular. Nourishing your love for gardening may prove difficult to do in an environment that lacks…a backyard. But we are here to offer alternative solutions to your home design issues. This post is a reminder of that unoccupied space above your building that could be converted into a beautiful urban oasis. As you probably imagine, building your own rooftop garden is not as easy as planting shrubs in the ground, but with research, good planning and determination, such a project could substantially upgrade your lifestyle. If you are ready to embark on this dazzling adventure, the photos below should inspire you in deciding on the overall design of the new garden.
Once you structure your rooftop garden in your mind, clear up the path for implementation. Check with your builder or contractor to see if your roof can hold the pressure of the soil, containers and so on. Take safety measures- install fences and miniature shelters in order to protect the plants from falling objects ( if you are surrounded by taller buildings for example). Start researching on the type of plants you can grow and talk to a specialist about maintenance. Installing sprinklers is a great idea, especially during summer. These being said, we wish you a fun time planning and developing the perfect roof garden- please let us know how it goes!
There’s more to San Diego than sun and surf, although the nation’s eighth-largest city loves to boast about a mild climate considered by many to be the best in the U.S. With (mostly) easy access to beaches, mountains and deserts, San Diego is a recreation lover’s paradise. Attractions like the jewel of Balboa Park (home to the San Diego Zoo), Legoland California and SeaWorld keep tourism booming, and the highly rated University of California at San Diego has spawned a healthy biotech industry. Meanwhile, a diverse, ever-gentrifying urban population is upending the city’s reputation as a conservative Navy town.
