EASY STEPS TO SET UP TERRACE GARDEN

Terrace gardening is your best bet if you want to take your gardening game to the top (literally and figuratively).  Your roof space comes in handy when you have less yard space and wish to add more plants and herbs to your gardening collection. Even if your kitchen garden needs an upgrade with ample space and more exposure to the light source, your terrace garden will provide the needed space. Besides these, the touch of greenery added to your terrace reduces the indoor temperature of your house by bringing down the heat absorption of your building.

Setting up a terrace garden isn’t rocket science, and you can spice up your roof space into a shady relaxation area by following the steps given below: 

1. Plan before you act

  Before shifting your pots and plants, sketch a layout of how to make the best use of your roof. The first thing to take into consideration is the space capacity, as it determines the number of plant containers you can place and the maximum weight of soil it can hold. Your terrace is also a place that attracts direct sunlight. While some plants are heat resistant and require full shade, others prefer partial exposure to sunlight. Hence, it is necessary to create a shaded area to act as a shield guard against direct heat.

2. Waterproof your roof

Prepping the surface of your roof is a must before you venture into creating your green space. Although this is not an essential step in regular gardening, it is a must when setting up your terrace garden. Waterproofing your roof prevents leakage of water into your building when you water your plants.

3. Install a drainage system

A proper drainage system is necessary to clear out any excess water in your garden. Porous mats and granular materials are drainage materials that do their job effectively by discharging soaked water. You can also use an extra layer of filter in your water outlet to avoid clogging and settling of any solid matter. 

4. Choose your plants and pots

While setting up your space for greens, make use of planting containers and raised plant beds, as they don’t clutter up your rooftop and are easily portable. But keep in mind the weight of each container and see to it if your terrace can hold them. The choice of plants can range from flowering plants to edible greens. Any plant with small root systems is ideal for your terrace garden. 

5. Other essentials

Prepare the soil according to the needs and demands of each plant, and keep an eye on the moisture and mineral content. Regular watering of plants, applying fertilisers and checking for pests once in a while are all absolutely necessary. Since you have set up your plants’ abode on the terrace, you must also look out for birds and make use of a wire mesh or garden net to protect them. 

Once you’re done setting up your terrace garden, sit back and relax in a corner, and trust me when I say nothing is as therapeutic as this. May all your weeds be wildflowers
