"We have pressing issues if we and our
children are to survive - food, drinking
water, climate, soil. Each of us will
have to recognize that it is up to us as
individuals to be the wind and not seek a
weathervane. The winds bring change. "

ROOFTOP GARDEN TRELLISED PLANTERS

A STUDY IN SUSTAINABILITY
A

testament to the passion and commitment of one individual,
this compact 430 sq ft vegetable garden on the roof of a
residential home consists of six raised cedar beds, vertical
trellises for climbing fruit and vegetables like cantaloupe and
butternut squash and over 50 planters of various sizes, shapes
and material.
A versatile aluminum framing system encompasses the raised
beds and acts as a base for the trellises. It also enables the beds
to be used as season extenders by a variety of covering such as

greenhouse plastic, shade cloth and wire mesh. The various covers protect the plants at critical stages of growth from critters
and the environment i.e. strong winds, excessive rainfall, blistering sunshine, birds, squirrels and raccoons.
The raised beds and planters feature a sub-irrigation system
that capitalizes on capillary action with no loss of water or
fertilizer run-off. The system provides the plants with consistent
water and oxygen at the root level and greatly contributes to
their optimal growth in a challenging roof top environment.
