Take a deep breath of cool clear air as you gaze out at the sky above a city horizon, from these fresh rooftop gardens by Amir Schlezinger of My Landscapes Garden Design. We can almost hear the distant hum of traffic below between the twinkling streetlights!
We love the feathery privacy screening created by the border of leafy green plants in this one, as well as the tropical jungle-like borders to make you feel as though you are sunbathing in the rainforest rather than perched above a concrete jungle. The decking runs from edge to edge, giving this space the feeling of an indoor room.
This built-in waterfall will create soothing sounds, whilst the glow from the lighting effects evokes a feeling of warmth whilst outdoors. Benches around the perimeter provide seating for contemplation.
Soft furnishings bring interior comforts outside.
This roof patio provides a perfect platform for al fresco dining with guests. A piece of sculpture brings a touch of sophistication to the look.
Concrete planters create a contemporary image, and look amazing with some creative lighting. Isn’t this just the perfect place to throw back a well earned cocktail at the end of a tough working day?
Planters can also be built right into the patio to blur the edges between zones. Note the beautiful selection of different colored leaves; not all color in a garden needs to come from flowers. In this design the built-in bench has been utilized as extra seating at the table-great for unexpected guests!
Architectural plants, bamboo and palms looks terrific with up-lighters at the root of the design.
Check out this curved deck! The effect is seamless, and the shape is cunningly reflected in the curvaceous green planter too.
Levels look great on roof gardens too, where decks end to make way for concrete pathways-and don’t forget the led lighting to nicely mark the edge, and warn wanderers to watch their step!
