Garage roof gardens are a way to grow crops on top of commercial, residential, or industrial structures.

They have three main goals: to reduce urban temperatures and improve air quality and stormwater management.

Plants need plenty of sunlight to thrive. Because they get so little sunlight, it is difficult to plant flowers in a suburban home. Rooftop gardens are a great place to grow. These gardens can enjoy all the sun the clouds permit as they tower above obstacles.

Also, monitor the sun they get and ensure they have enough water. They will dry faster.

Improved Air Quality

Because plants take in CO2 and then release it, they make the best teammates. If you live in New York City, a rooftop garden allows you to get fresh air in a polluted area. You can enjoy the beauty of nature even in places where plants are rare.

They are always looking for food. A rooftop garden can be a great resource for birds and insects. This is great for wildlife as well as humans.
