Transform Your Home Or Business With Rooftop gardens

Humans have been making use of roof gardens for thousands of years.

The main purpose was for insulation and then as time went on they were used for food production and in some cases, domestic animals were kept on the roof as it provided warmth in the winter.

Today use of roof gardens is extremely important in urban areas and cities as they don’t only beautify the space but reduce the heat island effect, as well as greatly reducing stormwater runoff.
