Designs With Altitude

A rooftop or balcony garden can create valuable living space outdoors, but making the most of what can be a small area can be challenging. Here are some factors to consider.

Take the Scenic View

Views and privacy. Take advantage of being on "top of the world." Showcase great views of the city skyline or nearby green space by framing them with plant material. Frame a great view with a structure that has a window—create privacy with blinds that can be pulled down or shutters that can be closed.
