ROOFTOP garden looks
10 Furniture picks
With any rooftop garden, your furniture needs to be lightweight, movable, and also weather-tolerant. And unless you have a ton of storage space (who does?) this furniture is going to be outside year -round. I tend to go for natural materials that are longer lasting, and I love mesh as a material. If you are worried about longevity, there are many types of furniture covers that help to preserve furniture during the harsh fall and winter seasons. You can also oil wood to restore the grain and get it looking more of a walnut-y color, but I love the look of greying wood. But overall, the furniture needs to address how you will use the space, so whether for entertaining, sunning, or just casual group hangouts, layout and furniture choice is super important.
top 10 Plant picks
Rooftop gardens are essentially as open to the elements as plants can possibly be. So plants that do best in that context need to be tough under pressure! That means they need to: love sun, tolerate wind, sustain heavy freeze-thaw conditions, and not mind drought-like conditions.
