Did you see the editorial about roof gardens in Sunday’s New York Times?
There seems to be two kinds of roof gardens: there’s the fancy green roof projects like The Times is endorsing in this editorial; and then there’s the roof gardens like ours where you (safely) put a few pots and a patio table up on the roof and having some fun. Both are great, but I’m wondering how the semantics will shake out to define the difference.
No matter what you call them, The Time’s is right about the “weird urban serenity” roof gardens of all kinds create. And check out this fact: “summer heat … can exceed 170 degrees on a roof.”
