Author(s):

Abstract:
Today, more than half of the world’s population lives in town or cities. Highly populated urban centers are growing, where undeveloped or green spaces are hard to be found. On the top of the buildings of urban areas, there lies a treasure trove of unused and unwanted spaces: Rooftop. These spaces are the perfect spot for a bit of gardening and for making the sustainable green city. Roof scaping is any easy alternative to restore greenery in the places lacking cultivable lands which on the other hand helps in enhancing the urban landscape and promotes greenery in the cities. Roof scaping is getting a grip in the urban areas because it is easy to handle, economic and has an array of health and environmental benefits. Roof scaping not only increase the aesthetic value of the house but it also acts as a source of fresh fruits and vegetables. If the right components are used along with the good drainage facility and other important points are considered; then Roof scaping can be the best option for the urban areas where the green spaces are lacking.
