A Garden Atop Your Head

by Guest on Oct 24, 2012

A languid seeming branch of bougainvillea, laden with bright pink flowers adorns the railings. The arch above the windows, covered with green healthy money plants. The petite porch all looking lively, with shades of pinks and yellows dominated by greens of all hues and tones. Plants of all shapes and sizes adorn the beautiful roof top in pretty earthen pots, either placed strategically or hung from the poles and rafters of railings. Isn’t it a pretty description of a sweet little house you would want to come back to after a busy day of work in the concrete jungle?

With the world population expanding at superior rates, people are forced to utilise every small inch of land that they have. And with making everything a structure of glass and steel and most importantly cement, the earth and with it the green buddies- the plants seem to miss out. In these times of apartment house systems, cubicle offices and mid air hanging buildings, roof top gardening has come as something of a boon.

In whatever small places you can afford, you can arrange small potted plants and less space consuming creepers, making the space look much greener and fresher. With it comes the happiness of doing your bit for nature too. The plants not only provide you with oxygen, they also make the whole ambience cooler and calmer. Now, you can be a green buddy without complaining about the problem of *no soil available*. And if you are an eco buddy, you could even contact a specialist in roof top gardening (yes, there are some, astonishingly!) and get yourself a full-fledged garden along with grass and bigger shrubs that need a bit of caring from your side. For home, you can also cultivate a vegetable garden in your house top and provide it with just a little amount of care in your wee times. A good, green and ecological hobby, isn’t it?

The concept started very early with garden loving housewives cultivating a potted garden, hung from the ceiling. Then slowly this was copied by almost all the neighbouring houses who found it very amusing. They eventually started cultivating creepers that would growon top of the gates and swings, among other such structures. Now, this has grown into a full-fledged business with planters and specialists finding making the whole aura of the home a magnificent one by this concept.

Nowadays, there seem to be a huge number of people interested in such rooftop gardens. Many home décor companies, architects and interior decorators are now promoting the idea of a rooftop garden, complete with a shower and a pool. There are a number of practical problems as well as financial concerns, but it all seems worth it. A rooftop garden can give your house the ambience of a bungalow with a full-fledged garden. Also, you do not need to invest too much of money, since there are various options open according to your budget. Rooftop gardening seems to be the way to go.
