Once you structure your rooftop garden in your mind, clear up the path for implementation. Check with your builder or contractor to see if your roof can hold the pressure of the soil, containers and so on. Take safety measures- install fences and miniature shelters in order to protect the plants from falling objects ( if you are surrounded by taller buildings for example). Start researching on the type of plants you can grow and talk to a specialist about maintenance. Installing sprinklers is a great idea, especially during summer. These being said, we wish you a fun time planning and developing the perfect roof garden- please let us know how it goes!

A serious question for garden/landscape designer

I, (we, my husband and I) are trying to develop a business as landscape designers. We are not newbies to this. We have both been in the industry as nurseryfolk, growers, plant brokers, wholesale, retail for over 10 years each. More recently (about 1 1/2 years) have gotten into landscape design & installation for retail customers. The things we have not done in the ag industry are: farmers, full-out landscape contractors (hardscape/pond/major irrigation/excavation/curbing, etc), lawn maintenance (cut/edge/blow), or landscape architects. Due to life stage, we would like to develop as said designer/ installers, maybe sub out for added/desired client needs (irrigation setup,...

Drip irrigation and veggie gardens

Lots of problems with this. By design, we change around our veggie gardens each year. This means that typical drip systems also need to be changed around to fit the new arrangement. That's not easy to to.
The only time I could make a drip system work for me was with soaker hoses. My veggie garden was on a slope and I dug my furrows into an SSSS shape running back and forth across the slope. Then I put dual soaker hoses on a timer that followed the furrows - back and forth --- down the hill.
Everything was planted along lines created by the soaker hoses.
But now I use boxes and there are too many issues with drip systems running across boxes and the spaces between boxes, and dealing with the "square-foot" intensive planting technique.
I water by hand now.
