Wolfgang  Ansel, Petra  Reidel - Modern Roof Gardens—Creative and Individual


Up and away into the garden!

Garden lovers are increasingly discovering the attractions of gardening high up above everyday life. Especially in the city, flat roofs often conceal many different kinds of areas that are often completely unused but well-suited for roof gardens. Wolfgang Ansel and Petra Reidel offer an up-to-date overview of the possibilities using these spaces and focus their attention in particular on individually designed, private roof gardens. Homeowners, landscape architects, and garden designers will find expert knowledge and inspiration in the technical descriptions and contemporary designs, in project reports and stimulating large-format color photos: an indispensible resource for anyone wishing to fulfill their dream of a garden paradise on the roof.
