rooftop gardens

A roof garden is any garden on the roof of a building. Besides the decorative benefit, roof plantings may provide food, temperature control, architectural enhancement, and recreational opportunities. Because available gardening areas in New York City are so limited, going up on the roof is the perfect solution! Added benefits include a beautiful, functioning garden that takes care of its own water and waste. Plus, you enjoy great vegetables, flowers, trees and more!

Hydroponics and other alternative methods can expand the possibilities of roof top gardening by reducing the need for soil and its tremendous weight. We also use plantings in containers extensively on our roof top gardens.
Green roofs improve air quality, conserve energy, reduce stormwater runoff and help reduce the urban heat island effect. The plants reflect heat, provide shade and help cool the surrounding air as plants transport water through pores in their leaves.
The water draws heat as it evaporates, cooling the air in the process. Plants also filter the air, which improves air quality by using excess carbon dioxide to produce oxygen. Call on us to create a rooftop oasis for you, your residents, your guests and all of NYC to enjoy!
