Roof Terrace Gardening

Roof terraces and balconies are oases in an urban landscape. As a viewing platform, a theatrical setting or a place of retreat, the roof garden fulfils many needs in the city.

The new book ‘Roof Terrace Gardening’ by Michele Osborne celebrates the elevated garden, showing there is little to beat the rooftop for experiencing an sense of space and light, and enjoying the view. Illustrated with over 300 photographs of sky-high locations, from England to New York to New Zealand, the book offers a range of styles, and themes: formal and informal designs, spaces for entertaining, modern showcases and contemplative spaces. With advice on boundaries, surfaces, decoration, lighting and planting, this book shows how to transform a rooftop space.
