Rooftop Garden Samples and Inspiration

If you’re thinking about how you can transform your rooftop into useable garden and leisure space, you’ll want some rooftop garden ideas before beginning the project. In this post, we’re giving you resources and links to sources of inspiration.

Also, you can read our primers on practical considerations for rooftop gardens here on our blog:

Gathering Rooftop Garden Ideas

While you’re gathering ideas, you may want to create a Pinterest Board or Houzz Idea Book. I’m sure most of you are familiar with these convenient tools for amassing bits of inspiration, but if not, I’d encourage you to try them. Not only will you have great organizational tools at your fingertips while you start to plan, but you’ll be surprised at how much visual inspiration you can find right on these apps.

So, without further ado, here are some quick links to boards and idea books.


Lastly: Tracking and Communicating Your Thoughts on Your Rooftop Garden

If you decide you want some professional help with your rooftop garden or just need an easy way to track your own ideas, download our Landscape Assessment & Planning Guide for a quick and easy way to tick off considerations, likes, wants and needs for your rooftop garden. No doubt you’ll find a variety of considerations you hadn’t thought of. You’ll also very likely be surprised at how easy, fast and helpful this checklist is.

If you need help, we’re highly experienced in both rooftop gardens (see the services we offer for rooftop gardens) and greenroofs. We’ll be happy to meet with you to discuss how we can help you transform your rooftop into the garden of your dreams.
