A Bird's Eye View...

I am definitely *not* a gardener, but I do like container gardening, urban living and dining al fresco.  All of those combined mean that I am the perfect candidate for a rooftop terrace and/or garden.  To me it's the perfect compromise between city living and a bit of green space to call one's own.  Setting price aside for the moment, I'd take any of these and enjoy it thoroughly!

What about you? 
Do you prefer a sprawling country garden, a suburban manicured yard,
or a city spot like these?

I definitely think there is something special about rooftop city gardens! I know Germany has some amazing ones too! Container gardening can be a little easier too!

love gardens of all sorts...but as a horticulturist, I am especially interested in large estate gardens which have their fair share of containerized plants as well..love the plants on these rooftop terraces..what a wonderful idea!

I love a beautiful garden...but if I lived in the city I would definitely do something like this. I just have to be able to enjoy the outdoors.

I have never had a rooftop garden, but there is something really appealing about it to me. Maybe that it is sort of enclosed and can't sprawl on forever. Whenever I look outside all I see is the TONS of gardening I should be doing!

I pinned that last image with the earthy saltillo tile and white. Gorgeous. I'm a small space girl through and through. So a small deck or patio with containers definitely does it for me!
