Roof garden


The creation of roof gardens has extended the functional landscape into the built environment, significantly enriching the visitor experience. Located on top of a built structure, below, level with, or above the surrounding ground plane, roof gardens are intended to provide increased longevity of the roofing material, improved water retention after a rain event, lowered urban heat island impacts, and, in most but not all cases, human interaction. Typically, a roof garden includes paving, plants, furniture, built structures, sculpture, and often pools or fountains. While transforming neglected urban space, roof gardens can provide valuable environments for eating and socializing, relaxing and recreation.
