Rooftop Farm – Before & After

One of my clients was running out of growing room this year. The three beds I gardened last year weren’t enough to satisy, so we wanted to expand. Lo and behold, we decided to farm out the top of their garage. A few yards of soil and compost later, and VOILA – we’re in business.

The most challenging part of starting a large garden is cutting in rows. I didn’t want to do standard row-farming. I wanted to create the illusion of fullness. To accomplish that, I zig zagged some rows in. When all the plants are full and in bloom, it will look abundant and nearly overcrowded. That’s the goal!
