Understand What to Consider While Creating a Rooftop Garden

If looking at the contemporary buildings, we find most of them covered with green and wildflowers. Theoretically, a roof surface – be it sloped or curved – can easily be greened with the help of expert landscape designers. Some of the developed nations have made it mandatory to create a green space in buildings, particularly for the rooftops.

When it comes to creating a rooftop garden in NYC, there appear some essential things that you should consider while planning for a green space on your rooftop. The entire procedures do rely on the way how you want to use it, how you want to preserve, and what you want to grow in your garden. Truly, a flat rooftop, nearly a level ground condition, is comparatively easier than the sloped rooftop, and both of them do have some particular challenges.

Here are some important points that you should avoid while creating a rooftop garden in NYC:

  • Occupancy and the size of garden: Occupancy is the most required thing that you should consider first of all. It relates to the overall architectural design of your home.

  • Occupant loads: You should also think about the loads of your new garden design. You should not go beyond the structural load capacity.

  • Types of wildflowers and foliage: In addition, you should also consider about the types of wildflowers and foliage that you are planning to add to your rooftop garden. Landscape design services have come up with so many options that you can select a particular one depending on your requirements.

  • Possibility of structural modification: While designing a rooftop garden, you should leave the possibility of structural modification that you can do in future.
