Roof garden designs are big news in the world of landscape architecture and design. As developers and urban designers look up to the sky for the last remaining spaces for landscape, some truly inspiring designs have incorporated the most innovative landscaping materials to produce public spaces and roof terraces that take the inner city dweller to a whole new realm of greenery and nature.

Controversially by some, loved by others, London’s Sky Garden, a roof garden design within the Walkie Talkie building, incorporates landscapes that make the visitor feel as though they have walked over the brow of a hill to see the impressive London cityscape open up before them.

Another roof garden design that made the press at the University of Greenwich, which unveiled 14 new roof garden designs within a purpose-built campus that provide outdoor spaces for students and academics. Another high-profile roof garden revealed late last year was the iconic Battersea Power Station whose design comprises a 355-metre long landscaped roof garden space that was designed by the architects behind New York’s High Line.

As reports of the UK’s cities losing more and more of their public spaces come to light, 2015 looks set to truly be the year of the roof garden and the roof terrace, and we should expect to see more and more high-profile, innovative balcony designs throughout the year. Advancements in landscaping materials and landscaping products are one of the pivotal forces behind this trend in landscaping, with innovative products designed and adapted especially for installing where there are no aggregate footings and where drainage and the ability to access flooring exists. An example of this is the ability to install paving and non-slip composite decking in balcony and roof garden designs, thanks to advancements in paving support and decking support pedestals.
