Roof Terraces

Roof terraces, roof gardens and podium planting require considerable research and planning. Available load needs to be determined before the design can be explored.

These gardens, when well designed, provide valuable outside space for offices, flats and apartments. Planting and structures can help to provide screening from unsightly views or conversely, to maximise a view or help to enclose and protect a windy area. These gardens are exposed to the elements so plant selection and watering are key factors to consider.

Roof gardens and terraces are a great way to extend the inside, outside. Planters, raised beds, seating and lighting can all work together to create a garden in the smallest space.
