7. After-care and maintenancePrioritising maintenance is a crucial aspect of planning all roof gardens, de Sousa says.

For larger gardens, Sunil recommends a combination of a drip and a sprinkler system. “Pump systems that can be activated from a convenient location within the house will simplify maintenance,” he says. Plan for easy access points to the terrace, so that daily care and watering is not an issue. Other tips for planning a low-maintenance garden is to avoid planting too many annuals or lawn grasses that require a lot of watering and mowing.Read more:6 Mistakes to Avoid in Your Balcony GardenTell us:What type of decorative elements would you like to use in your terrace garden?
