Small Rooftop Patio Design Idea

Rooftop gardens and patios have to consider several special circumstances that other garden types don't. Water and its delivery, containment, and drainage is one of the most important primary considerations. Along with that, a rooftop patio requires additional structural strength of the building and roof top. With water, pots, and soil comes a lot of weight that needs support.

Other secondary considerations are dependant on preferences and styles. High unobstructed winds will determine types and heights of plants, kind of furniture, and other elements and structures used. A need for shade or a wind block would bring more challenges and weight to the roof which would need more structural support. So again, roof and balcony patio garden ideas need extra consideration and planning to be safe as well as functional.
