Roof Gardens Offer Retreat in the Heights

While intensive green roofs are built for their visual, environmental and regulatory purposes, roof gardens serve as a place of people’s gathering, visit and pleasure.

Roof gardens are quite different from simple green roofs –they require deep soil to sustain various plants that include native species, trees and bushes. Since roof gardens are landscaped using typical landscape techniques they also host fountains, ponds, labyrinths and playgrounds.

Eight rooftops featured here represent havens of green tranquil amidst city clamor.
