Transcript of Roof Top Gardens!
What do they do?
Who does it? - colorcoat-online.com
- cityfarmer.org Research Also when forests are cut down to build buildings many animals loose their homes, but when rooftop gardens are planted it brings back some habitat for smaller animals like birds or squirls. What do they do? Who does it? Their are a few jobs involved when creating a rooftop garden. For an example architects design their buildings to showcase the beauty of a rooftop garden, and the ability to support one. Also interior designers and landscapers design and put together the rooftop gardens. What are they? As you can see a rooftop garden is basically any garden on top of a roof... Besides the beautiful scenery they create, rooftop gardens provide food when planted (growing food on a rooftop garden is sometimes called rooftop farming), hydrological benefits, new architectural design, habitats for wildlife (birds could nest in the trees), and the option for recreational use. Rooftop gardens can help the environment. Plants have an ability to reduce the overall heat in the buildings with rooftop gardens which helps reduce energy consumption. The main cause of heat in cities is isolation, the heat build up from the sun on the roads and buildings in the city and how the heat stays in the building material. Plant surfaces keep the buildings cool because they do not rise more than 4–5 °C above the ambient (ambient: of or relating to the immediate surroundings of something) This help cool the environment between 3.6 and 11.3 degrees Celsius, depending on where you are (the hotter the area the more it will cool). The University of Cardiff preformed this study. Lets not forget about oxygen, all of the plants on rooftop create more oxygen and fresher air. More jobs? As seen below someone needed to design these rubber bottomed grass squares so the dirt will stay on angled roofs. References As you can see Rooftop gardens are a very beautiful and environmental addition to society and should be used in the future I hope to see many rooftop gardens in all cities. thank you
