The Ultimate Rooftop Garden Guide

There’s never been a better time to construct a rooftop garden.

Why? Because the weather conditions are perfect. Right now, summer is coming to a close, meaning plants are no longer in danger of drying out quickly, (as long as you’re staying on top of your watering duties). We’re also a long way off from winter, giving new plants time to develop before the frost comes.

As a result, we’ve come up with the ultimate rooftop garden guide to help you get up and running if you’ve never done this before. We’ll cover a variety of topics including what to do before buying any plants, such as examining where your garden is going to be and sorting out your space in case a garden isn’t the only thing you want to have or do in the area. The do’s and don’ts of drainage, something many people forget about, and tips from planning your plants, as you don’t want to buy a forest full and then come to plant it all to discover you’ve got the wrong ones.

Selecting the right soil is also something you need to think about, which we’ll help you do, as well as giving you an idea on how much maintenance is required for certain plants.

Finally, we’ll show you some of the most incredible rooftop gardens in the world. Trust us, you’ll be amazed!

So take a look and get growing gardeners!
