Strongly urbanised centres of large urban agglomerations are teeming with business, cultural and private life. The hearts of modern cities offer a lot to their inhabitants, but they often lack a place where we can relax in peace without having to leave. The opportunity to relax in a green oasis of tranquillity is no longer reserved for owners of suburban single-family homes. Virtually anyone can build a roof garden!
Those interested in building their own roof garden will undoubtedly be interested in answering the question of how to make a roof garden. It is worth knowing that such structures can be made on both flat and sloping roofs (with a maximum pitch of 25%). Care should be taken to ensure that the system has a good load-bearing capacity, as well as a waterproofing layer to prevent moisture from entering the building and excessive plant root growth.

The available products blend perfectly with the modern architecture of roof gardens. They are durable yet quick and easy to assemble.
Another frequently asked question in the field of roof gardens is what plants to plant on the green roof slope. If it is only to be decorative, sedums, dry-leaved grasses and hornwort, and all kinds of undemanding meadow species are excellent choices. However, if the roof garden is to be used for recreation and leisure, it is worth taking an interest in planting lavender, boxwood, juniper, yew and pine trees.
An important question often arises – does a winter garden have to have a glass roof? Of course, this type of construction looks modern and allows the creation of a year-round garden, independent of the climatic conditions in a given place. Such a garden room can also be used during heavy rain and snow. However, glass roofing is not required.
