Why Rooftop Gardening Has Become so Important?

Greening Stone

Besides being a quite retreat, a rooftop garden can have many benefits. In this post, we’ve compiled a few of the most important advantages that you can draw while having a rooftop garden.

  • First: A rooftop garden, if conceived well, won’t eat a lot of your realty space. Further, these green spaces add a new dimension to your otherwise gray urban landscape. In a couple of European countries—such as Switzerland—laws are in place to design new buildings so they accommodate rooftop gardens. (As per the law, existing buildings in the area should allocate 20 percent of their total space for building a garden or a green space.)

  • Second: Rooftop landscaping can also allow you to be eco-friendly, too. If a rooftop garden space is well maintained, it’ll help in absorbing carbon dioxide and in bringing down the air pollution level. Apart from this, such spaces will avoid flooding, improve storm water runoff, and reduce the chances of water pollution.

  • Third: Let’s talk of realty value, now: A well-pruned green area that sits atop a building will improve its realty value. The realty value of a building will increase once the structure’s aesthetic value will improve, and that value will improve only if your building has a USP—such as a rooftop garden.

  • Fourth: A garden area can be an excellent temperature regulator. A rooftop garden can shade the house from sun’s rays during sweltering weather; whereas, the same garden area can even protect a home from frigid winds.

  • Fifth: Last but not least, a rooftop garden area can be used for growing vegetables and fruits, too. (However, for that, you’d require the services of a professional NYC rooftop gardens designer if you aren’t a qualified horticulturist or an avid gardener.)

So if you have a little space on your building’s roof, why not use it for having an eye-pleasing garden.
