Rooftop gardens bring many good things to houses and buildings. They increase beauty and charisma. They save space. They extremely improve air quality. They are good insulators and noise reductions. They prevent roof damages and roof repairs because they extend roof life. They make people happier!

What about plants and flowers and other lives on the rooftop garden? What good or better things do they receive from being in a place that’s different from the typical, a place elevated and more exclusive?

Here are 5 ways rooftop gardens make flowers and plants live better!

[1] MR. SUN IS WELCOME!

The roof is the part that receives most of everything coming from above. Specifically, it is the area that gets hit directly by the sun. Because of that, when you have a rooftop garden, you do not need to worry about the amount of sunlight your plants receive for photosynthesis and other vital processes. Mr. Sun’s way to them are neither blocked; his supply cannot lack.

The rooftop garden might sometimes be too sunny for humans, but for those plant lives, it’s just right and perfect. The rooftop is a very advantageous spot for flowers and plants to be blessed with the brightness they love and deserve to have!

[2] PLANTS CATCH AND USE RAINWATER.

Plants on rooftop gardens freely catch rainwater, and they like that! They get free water, and you are also able to save water consumption. Rooftop gardens are perfect in water conservation and productive utilization. Rainwater doesn’t just run off the roof and add or lead to flooding; instead, it hydrates plants and flowers. 

What’s more fantastic is that plants use rainwater instantly after it falls from above. You can also store the excess water for other uses. Amazingly, the water can help in growing vegetables on rooftops.

[3] ANIMALS CAN VISIT.

Rooftop gardens provide a homey habitat or “park” for other life forms, specifical animals like birds and butterflies! Just make sure they aren’t pests aiming to destroy your dearest plants!

The rooftop garden can be a place they love to visit and give more life to. Also, it can serve as a stopover for birds. Both lives benefit here because animals and plants are able to connect and interact with each other, which is healthy.

[4] PLANTING TOOLS ARE LOCATED THERE.

Planting tools and other gardening equipment must be placed on the rooftop garden for easy access. Imagine needing to lift a lot of shovels and pots from the ground floor of a 20-floor building. It’s going to be challenging.

That’s a pro for you in rooftop gardens, but it also is for those plants because whenever they need some trimming, fixing or adjusting, they can be immediately helped.

[5] PLANTS ARE OUT OF REACH OF PLAYFUL HUMANS.

Gardens on the ground are faced with one common problem, and that is people playing with them or looking at them with their naughty hands.

If your garden is on the rooftop, then your beloved plants and flowers cannot be harmed and played with by any stranger, any “plant” thief and any playful friend. They will be safe from both stray animals and irresponsible humans!

Making them out of reach of other people keeps them safer. Another plus is that you can preserve and take care of them better when they are in an area secluded from chaos!

LIVES OVER LIVES

If the lives of people benefit from rooftop gardens, the lives on those gardens must tremendously benefit as well and even more! Plants and flowers are marvelous creatures that deserve to live nicely even amidst the world where pollution is a huge enemy. Appreciate rooftop gardens, and when you’re creating one for your own house or building, make sure they give the best conditions for those enchanting creatures!
