Residential Rooftop Garden Design London

Maximising your valuable roof space through design

Acacia Gardens has experience helping customers with their residential rooftop garden design in London. Designing a domestic rooftop garden often poses several challenges, from drainage to weather conditions and how to transport materials to the top of the apartment block or house. Acacia Gardens has years of experience creating exciting and beautiful gardens for clients on roofs so that we can take care of every aspect for you. You can read below to learn more about our residential rooftop garden design process and rooftop garden designs.

Our Rooftop Garden Design Process

Before starting your rooftop garden design, you should have a site inspection. During this visit, we’ll discuss key design factors: the space’s size, roof orientation, weather challenges like wind, site access and parking. Your design preferences, expected usage, and desired features such as seating, cooking areas, lighting and plant arrangements will be considered. Rooftop flooring, your stylistic inclinations, colour schemes, drainage, safety measures, budget, and timelines will all be part of our collaborative conversation. We aim to create a visually pleasing and functional design for your needs.

Rooftop Garden Design Features To Consider

Acacia Gardens will tailor rooftop garden designs to your preferences and budget. Key features include various flooring options like decking or paving. For seating, built-in options resist wind, but fold-up furniture stored in protective cupboards is also popular. Rooftop spaces often need shade from removable sun sails, structures, or overhead plants. For entertainment, built-in barbecues and bar areas are client favourites. Containerised planting with waterproof linings featuring architectural plants elevates the space. Essential amenities include an external tap and irrigation system, while built-in lighting enhances evening use. Lastly, painting exterior walls in vibrant hues can add a design statement. With all our designs, we take into consideration safety and water drainage.
