Create a fresh roof garden – useful tips for beginners and some great pictures

Create a rooftop oasis to enjoy all summer long.

Pots & Containers: Choose a comprehensive design theme. Most people think terracotta pots in different sizes scattered all over the terrace look great!

, (Caution: Terracotta dries extremely quickly and the plant roots are ‘baked’ into it, making it hard to keep anything other than geraniums alive in such containers.) This species, the ‘eclectic’ look works well in small gardens where there is plenty Green and shade are there, but in a modern condominium is failing. There are a wide variety of different and modern flower boxes on the market, if you really want to have a roof garden, remember to arrange the plants in isolation from each other.

Pots and plants container




Earth: Regular triple mixture will never work, it will compact easily and there are no worms to aerate the soil. A high-quality container mix with a slow (preferably organic) long-term fertilizer and plenty of perlite or vermiculite is well worth the money.

Soil and care

Drainage: If you have a large container, it is important that the floor has “feet” or at least some space for the air to move and drain water from the pots. This is especially important if the upper balcony overshadows your balcony. The soil lining with the filter cloth will prevent soil particles from creeping out through drainage holes.

Weight: If you want to make a big project on your patio or balcony, make sure the structure can support all the extra weight. Saturated soil and concrete or clay pots can really add a lot of weight.

Suitable plant species


Plants: Having a nice set of pots is fine, but be sure to choose suitable plant material. Perennials are worth investing in if their containers are deep enough to support new growth, and isolated or sheltered from the wind to survive the winter. There are a number of wonderful annuals to choose from. Balance your flowers with foliage – a common Boston fern looks beautiful in the right setting and requires little maintenance or sunlight.

Wooden flooring


Flooring: Such a beautiful floor enhances the value within a home, it makes a dramatic difference on a patio. Most condos have concrete blocks, giving an impersonal and cold look. Simply installing adornment over the existing paving stones (be sure not to drill into anything or spoil the roof membrane in any way) makes the difference.
If you do not want to use wood as flooring on your patio, there are several recycled decking materials on the market with different patterns and colors.

Futuristic building design


Place: Think about how you want to use the terrace space; is it a place where you will invite guests to retire and relax or simply enjoy the beautiful view? Decorate outside in a similar way as inside – candles and cushions make the exterior look soft and add a romantic feel, sculptures and stones can add a natural feel. Every garden should reflect the styles and preferences of the people who live there; usually it is a place where you usually want to relax a bit.

Care: Choose plants that are easy to care for. Bonsai can be beautiful, but can be difficult to nurture. Flowering plants usually need to cut off the flowers used to encourage constant flowering. Irrigation is necessary and can easily be forgotten when grappling with the weekend storm. If your patio gets full sun all day, remember to move the pots closer to a shady area or to order someone for irrigation.

Tips and hints for beginners

 Caution: Lastly, a few things to keep in mind are factors such as wind: many city terraces are prone to sudden gusts of wind or a constant breeze, so be careful with lightweight plastic furniture. Candles that stand outside can become in a messy pool of wax at the end of a hot summer day, and terracotta pots dry very quickly and break when overturned by wind or a careless foot – many types of pots in the market are made of polyurethane and are not easily broken or split in winter when icy temperatures recede.
