Indigenous plants for Rooftop Gardens

There are many advantages of green roofs other than just looking good. They help to stop the rain gushing down and therefor stop storm water runoff as well as keeping the building cooler indoors. The benefit to humans and animals is that the plants process the carbon dioxide from vehicles and produce oxygen, without which we would not live. They retard fires and help to reduce both noise and air pollution. Once planted up, they will require watering or irrigation until such time as the plants have established themselves.

Top 5 tips for creating an indigenous bird and wildlife friendly garden

  1. The most important consideration is to refrain from using any commercial pesticides. Research environmentally friendly ways of deterring those critters that eat your plants but do remember that they are the food for the birds that you want to entice into your space.
  2. Create an exclusion area where you spend little time and allow nature to take its course. Do leave a log to decay and provide insect food. If you position this area so that it is visible from your patio you will have a bird’s eye view of the visitors to your garden.
