A roof garden is an increasingly popular way to enjoy an outside space, particularly with the resurgence of inner city living. The often ‘industrial’ finish of these spaces can be softened or complimented, according to taste. Weight is an important factor in the type of materials chosen, as is the method of fixing to. Timber is an ideal material both for build practicalities and compatibility of design, and decking areas can incorporate raised planters, seating, screening and lighting as desired.
