A garden is not just a means for you to display your prized flowers and plant life. It can also be meant for social gatherings and a chance to talk about your passion with loved ones and family members. And since you want to set a warm and welcoming tone in the venue, it’s never a bad idea to toss in some comfortable pieces of furniture and maybe even a barbecue smoker setting so you get to cook up a good barbeque feast without compromising social interaction.
Gavin McWilliam & Andrew Wilson FSGD’s prized roof garden is quite a treat slap-bang in the middle of the city. Who says you can’t have a beautiful garden on a high-rise rooftop? This particular garden has won big in the recent 2017 Society of Garden Designers awards. The color palette and material of the featured architectural designs and pieces of furniture blend very well with the lush plant life that surrounds the social area. It is wonderfully laid out and polished to perfection with careful attention to detail. It features a simple outdoor cooking feature great for barbecues, beers, and a lot of friends and loved ones to join in on the fun. Taking into account this rooftop garden’s city oasis aesthetic and outdoor cooking functionality, we’re giving it a twothumbs up!
This garden just goes to show that while high-rise rooftops are not the most comfortable venues in the world, if you balance it out with just the right amount of plant life, you’re certainly going to have a nightcap barbecue to remember!
