The Modern Rise of Urban Roof Top Gardens

Thanks to the rise in popularity of urban roof gardens or roofscaping, city dwellers and workers no longer have to choose between the convenience of city life and easy access to restorative green environments. Trends in roof garden design run the gamut from decorative to interactive, with designs that provide everything from insulation and stormwater management to a way for urbanites to grow their own food.

The Benefits of Roof Gardens

Both practical and beautiful, roof top gardens offer a great way to enhance your residential or commercial building, providing the perfect escape for employees and residents alike. In fact, roof gardening is an emerging trend among many city dwellers with access to a green roof garden.

More importantly, living roof gardens offer a sustainable way to insulate a building and reduce heating and cooling costs. A roof top garden also cleans and purifies the air to help affect positive climate change within the city environment.

Green Roof Garden Design

There are as many different types of roof top gardens as there are people who use them. A roof garden can be designed for just about any purpose, including:

  • A green garden with herbs and vegetable- or fruit-bearing plants for use in the kitchen of a commercial restaurant.
  • Roof top gardens found atop apartment buildings may consist of a mix of potted plants, gathering spaces and seating for residents.
  • In 50+ communities, roof gardens may feature raised planter beds to offer residents the opportunity to indulge their passion for gardening in an ergonomically-friendly way.
  • Healthcare buildings may incorporate healing or meditative roof gardens into their offerings to patients and visitors.
