Rooftop Gardens and Green Walls

Got a wall you'd like to turn into a living, green feature?

As suburban blocks become smaller and cities grow upwards, vertical gardens are great ways to grow food, beautify properties and cool buildings through summer with an external insulation layer.

Some people may wish to take it a step further and create a rooftop garden with a view, providing wellbeing for humans and wildlife alike.

Whether you're a home gardener or a professional landscape designer working on commercial spaces, our Rooftop Gardens and Green Walls workshop will give you:

🌿 excellent advice,
💡 new ideas, and
🗺️ a blueprint to make the most of your outside spaces, no matter the size.

You will
🌿 Consider structural issues to accommodate rooftops and green-walls
🌿 Explore the challenges of weight, water, drainage and access
🌿 Consider the interface between your building and garden
🌿 Explore how plants can influence your home energy footprint
🌿 Discover how plants can enhance your wellbeing in small spaces such as rooftops, green walls, balconies, and tight narrow spaces.

The information in this one-day workshop is just as valuable for a commercial or public space as it is for home.
