What are the Do’s and Dont’s for Terrace gardening?

If you’re ready to get started on your own rooftop landscape and garden, here’s what you’ll need to do.

Before you begin, make sure you have permission from your landlord and that you have all of the necessary permits to grow a roof garden.

Also ensure that the terrace has necessary water proofing so that there will not be any water seepage onto the building.

Use lightweight potting soil like cocopeat instead of traditional soil to reduce the amount of weight on the roof.

Stock up on seeds, small shrubs, and herbs for your garden. Don’t forget to purchase some organic fertilizer and pesticides.

If you’re growing a container garden, choose lightweight pots for your outdoor plants rather than heavy ones made of concrete or ceramic.

Don’t forget to buy some handy gardening tools such as gloves, a spade, a trowel, and a good pair of gardening shears.

Make sure that right pesticides are used in the rooftop garden to control pests naturally with the right plants.
