An exploration of rooftop gardening, this book gives insight into the urban phenomenon by presenting the best work from world-renowned architects and garden designers.

Examining the challenges rooftop gardens face-sun, rain, storms, and a lack of ground beneath the roots-this book studies rooftop gardens in five continents.

Furthermore, it explores all the appropriate accoutrements that ought to accompany a modern rooftop garden, such as contemporary materials, trendy furniture, modern light installations, and of course, tried and tested plants.

Intensive or extensive - what roof gardens "give" us

Secret gardens - very private lifestyle oases

Public places - roof gardens for all

The challenge - sun, rain, storms and no ground beneath the roots

Rising to the challenge - tried and tested specimens from the plant world

Looking forward - the future of "green roofs"
