Terrace Garden & Balcony
If you’re looking for practical as well as a stylish way to make a terrace vegetable garden. Make a raised bed, in raised beds you’ll be able to grow lot of vegetables in compare to containers. Plants will thrive better with less care and maintenance, plus they are cheap.
The raised bed on the terrace does not differ fundamentally from those you see in a regular garden. Essentials before you begin Before designing and planting a balcony or rooftop garden, think about the style you’d prefer, how often you’ll entertain there, and whether you want to grow vegetables or herbs. Most importantly, consider how much time you will be able to give to maintaining your urban oasis.
First, it’s essential to ask a qualified architect or structural engineer how much weight your roof can take, and whether you need planning permission. You’ll also have to ascertain whether your balcony or roof garden is waterproof. This may sound strict, but it’s worth following the correct regulations initially to avoid paying for any damage if, say, you flood your home or the roof or balcony collapses under the weight of heavy containers. Ideally, position containers on the perimeter of a balcony or roof garden, near load-bearing walls or over a load-bearing beam or joist.
