The Ideal Home and Garden - India|September 2019
If you are lucky enough to have a rooftop terrace - turning it into a terrace garden acts as an extension of your home. A sign of getting close to nature says Manjari Sharma of Wagma Designs

With urbanisation, there is major shiftfrom rural to urban area and due to space scarcity, apartments are becoming popular. It is also noticed that this lifestyle has disconnected people from nature. Therefore, when we have limited space for our gardens, roof or terrace garden is a perfect solution to connect with nature. To this Manjari adds, “It is important to bring nature into our daily lives. A terrace gives an appealing look to your space. When built perfectly, it gives an aesthetic and elegant architectural feel. Moreover, the integration of a terrace greatly affects the market value of your house.” Apart from being therapeutic, terrace garden can let you cultivate ornamental trees and flowers, and even your own vegetables. Rest assured, it is not as hard as you might think!
