Owning a beautiful garden is the dream of many; but if you live in city areas, you may feel a lack of proper space. But, let me remind you, to start gardening, you don't need a huge field or ground. You can simply plant some beautiful flowers in a pot and either places them on your balcony, or roof-top, or even hang them in your windows.
If you have a roof or access to a roof, then with proper methods and steps, you can start roof-top gardening pretty easily. You just need the following things to start gardening.
First and foremost, you need to have access to the roof. You must either own one or get permission to start gardening in one. So, if you don't own the house, then get permission from the landlord about the access to the rooftop and then, begin your gardening.
The second most essentials are soil. It's obvious that plant needs soil but the kind of soil and its moisture and fertility matters the most. So, make sure to get yourself fertile soil. As you are planning roof-top gardening, the soil doesn't get many minerals as it gets from the earth. So, make sure to add fertilizers timely to ensure their fertility.
Pots and containers
Before purchasing pots and containers, ensure what kinds of plants you are planning to grow and in what way. This will help you evaluate the length and width of the pots. Terra cotta is used by many experts but they tend to dry faster. Thereupon, if possible, try to get yourself a customized pot or container.
Your plant needs to drain out some water but some containers do not have holes to drain the water. So, make sure to leave an opening at the bottom of your pot to ensure proper water drainage.
Ensure a water source
Your plants require persistent attention and care unless they're low maintenance plants. So, it is to ensure a water source. It's best if you can set an automatic water source which will feed your plants even when you get too busy with work.
Now, the most essential and core part of gardening- plants. After preparing other essentials, you need to select the type of plant you want to grow and nourish in your roof-top garden. You can either grow vegetables. Or you can also go with perennial plants- they require deep pots for their roots to grow but will make your rooftop greeny and beautiful. Also, if you want a flower garden, then you can easily choose the flowers you like and grow a beautiful little roof-top garden for yourself.
