@auronatty It is always nice to get vegetables from the top of our house instead of vendors.

Gardening is indeed so relaxing and makes the house look beautiful. I have around 100 planters all in my three balconies and I tell you its the best place of the whole house. We spend our morning sitting in the balcony and having tea there.

We need to impart the art of cultivating plants to our young ones.

Good points. I like this idea. But houses in the big cities are angular and do not allow such types of roof to most houses with the exception of the tall tower penthouse apartments in downtown areas.
