Roof Terrace Design
Roof terraces are increasingly common as urban dwellers seek to make the most of outside space. Creativity is not limited with good design and landscaping as shown in our wide ranging portfolio. Key elements of most roof terraces are seating areas, privacy, and planting to achieve a green space higher up in the sky line. These spaces can be hostile environments for certain species of plant and therefore we tend to use hardy plants that are used to coastal or drought tolerant conditions. The addition of irrigation and screening helps offset the environmental challenges. The main structural considerations for roof terraces include weight bearing of a structurally sound roof and planning permission. stylish furniture, waterfeatures, and lighting can transform a hard landscaped space into a tranquil oasis, or vibrant entertaining space.
