What Houzz contributors are saying:
Create a leafy enclosureThis rooftop retreat is lush and leafy thanks to clever planting and a smart use of space. By concentrating all of the planting around the edges of the terrace, it creates the feeling of all-enveloping greenery, while still leaving a good sized area in the centre for a table and chairs. You could create a similar green-wall effect to this by combining a low box hedge with a climber or rambler, as the designers have done here. Mixing in a couple of small ornamental trees such as bay or olive, will add extra height.
