What is a\nTerrace Garden?\n\n\n\nA terrace garden is necessary for people that don\u2019t have an actual backyard to start a garden. This type of a garden is perfect for people that live in condominiums (condos) and those that have a terrace that they would like to turn into a garden. \n\n\n\nYou can make your small space become a garden if you choose the right plants and flowers. It\u2019s important to see if your terrace has enough sunlight for plants\/flowers that need a lot of direct sun. If not, you should get plants and flowers that require less sunlight. \n\n\n\nTerrace gardens first became popular with farmers. They often needed to build sloping steps for their farm and therefore, it was popular to have gardens planting around them. \n\n\n\nIf you\nhappen to live in a place where there are a lot of hills, you may often see\nthese types of gardens as you drive up and down the hills. These are often popular in Asia. \n\n\n\nPlants often provide oxygen and give us an upbeat feeling when we look at them. There is nothing better than waking up in the morning and stepping outside to see your garden. \n\n\n\nSome\nterraces can be temperature controlled if they are enclosed. This will allow you to grow your garden year\naround. \n\n\n\nTerrace\ngardens can also be good for people that have to many hills in their yard or\ntheir home is on a slope. \n\n\n\nYour terrace\ngarden should have some type of a theme. \nYou may say that its going to have a rose theme. In this way, you can\ncombine red, pink, white and yellow roses together. You can mix it in with some\ncarnations and greenery as well. \n\n\n\nIf you have the space, it would be appropriate to put a sitting bench on our terrace with a lot of pottery plants and green shrubs outside of it. I have a friend in New York that made his garden with combining petunias with sunflowers. \n\n\n\nIt was an interesting display since she wanted to show different colors and types of flowers. She did it with a lot of artistic touches. She used some large swans that she placed next to her sitting bench. \n\n\n\nWhen I visit her, I tend to sit on the bench for hours and sip my iced tea. Its relaxing, entertaining and beautiful. \n\n\n\nAnother\ngreat idea is if you have a backwall on your terrace, you can have vines\ngrowing up the wall and use some dwarf trees for decoration. This is often one of the best displays of\nbeauty. You may not know it now, but its important to put some shrubbery in\nfront of the walls as well. \n\n\n\nIf you want\nto make it look more like a lush green garden, add some ferns on the terrace.\nIt\u2019s best to make it looks solid green with little flowers if you want a lush\ngreen garden. \n\n\n\nWhat Are\nSome Good Roof Garden Plants?\n\n\n\nHibiscusCamelliasHoneysucklesJapanese MaplesViolets\n\n\n\nWhat Can\nI Grow in My Terrace Vegetable Garden?\n\n\n\nTomatoesBasilLemon TreeEggplantsParsleyGreen PeppersOlive Tree Apple Tree\n\n\n\nTerrace\ngarden plants are one of the best gardening ideas around.

You can easily decorate your garden the way that you feel is appropriate for your space. It\u2019s best to check the sunlight. \n\n\n\nMany roof tops have no shade and therefore, you need to have vegetable plants growing that require no shade. Make sure that you water your plants regularly or else they will dry out. Keep your soil moist unless your plant instructions say otherwise. \n\n\n\nTerraced Rock\nGarden\n\n\n\nYou need to\nhave an artistic talent within you to create a terraced rock garden. These are also known as Alpine gardens. When building this type of garden, its important\nto use a variety of different rocks. \nAlso, choose flowers and tree shrubs to blend in with the rocks as\nwell. \n\n\n\nThe rocks\nare going to be in different sizes.

I wasn\u2019t the best\ngardener when I started my home garden. However, over time, I managed to have a\nlot more insight into what I was trying to build and create. \n\n\n\nOnce you\nstart getting feedback for your modern terrace garden from friends and family,\nyou will know what is working and what is not.
