8 rooftop garden design ideas
1 Make an Entertaining zone
Transform a courtyard into an outdoor entertaining zone by using a patterned outdoor rug to ground your dining setting.
2 Grow your own herbs and vegetables
Try including oregano, kaffir lime, kale, thyme, parsley, sage, English spinach.
3 Try growing succulents
Succulents are ideal froma maintenance point of view, edible plants and vegetables will give a back-to-nature feel and flowering plants will add colour.
This antique mirror, from Elements i Love, brightens up a corner and reflects the vivid greenery. Well-placed mirrors will increase the ‘size’ of the space and the sense of greenery.
Add colour with edible foilage like red mustard plant and purple lettuce
A wooden wheelbarrow is used to store pot plants and adds a rustic touch to the urban landscape. Remember that all tables, chairs, pots and wheelbarrows will need to withstand the elements!
7 Embrace variety
This rooftop terrace is home to a variety of plants. Potted succulents, perennials and ornamentals provide colour and texture. It’s important to treat this space as you would an indoor area. Choose a colour scheme and apply it to plants, accessories and any other decorative elements.
