Developing a Rooftop Space for an Urban Getaway

Developing a Rooftop Space for an Urban Getaway

When you live in the city, it's easy to get caught up in the day to day grind. Creating a space infused with natural elements that one can get away from daily stressors and increase their overall mood and well-being is an invaluable benefit.

We love the city for its lights, people, and energy. That type of environment has an incredible feeling that inspires and excites everyone with a seemingly endless array of new and unique experiences. But even for all the wonder and excitement, being amongst all that activity every day can seem like just a bit too much at times. You need a place where you can escape from the daily grind. A personal retreat where you can relax and be at ease. But in the city we call home, where can we expect to find something like that? To find the answer, all you need to do is look up!

Rooftops are the rage in urban landscape design. And why not? They provide a space where you can rise above the day to day street level experiences and be immersed in a new and extraordinary perspective of the city. These rooftop spaces give you a new perspective on the city, both literally (Those views!!) and figuratively by giving you a space in the hectic cityscape that is truly serene. Imagine walking up to your rooftop garden after a stressful day at work or a lazy Sunday afternoon to escape the sound and feel of the hustle and bustle below and enter a rooftop jungle.

The health benefits of being near plants can’t be overstated. Proximity to nature or elements reminiscent of the wild increases productivity and happiness. Just being near plants will help you relax.

So how do you make sure you get the best rooftop landscaping possible? First of all, location is key. While design is subjective, it’s usually a good idea to keep it simple with plants and furniture. After all, the scenery is just as important as the greenery.
