How To Design A Roof Garden? Roof gardens are the ultimate city gardens. They can be grand, or as simple as a cottage garden, they may just have a few containers, or harbor plants in great profusion, the best are extraordinary. But, roof gardens have their own set of problems.
The first and most important consideration, whether the roof garden is large or small, is the weight of the plants and containers. Full containers are fairly heavy and it is essential that the roof is strong enough to bear the load. It is sensible to have the load-bearing capacity of your roof checked by a structural engineer before starting work on creating your rooftop oasis.
