What Houzz contributors are saying:

As these planters were designed for edible gardening, leaching from the wood was an additional concern. All ipe planters were therefore lined with cedar. Otherwise, marine-grade or pressure-treated wood would suffice for ornamentals.Rooftop gardens also have the added challenge of weight to contend with. Soil, particularly when wet, is extremely heavy and therefore typically requires a soil mixture made from lighter materials. A company called Rooflite supplied the growing media for this project. Pool Farm served as a test site for a new mixture designed specially for rooftop agriculture.Rooftop gardening doesn’t need to be governed by limitations and what you can’t do. Understand what has to be in place for your garden to thrive. Everything else can be left to creative license.
