If you also want your own little corner of paradise, continuing with the reading, you will have the opportunity to discover a practical and simple guide to the design and construction of a garden on the terrace.
The first aspect on which we wish to dwell on the design and construction of a garden terrace is that relating to any authorizations and checks to be required to avoid being faced with unpleasant inconveniences.
If you live in a condominium read carefully the rules and make sure you can proceed without violating any architectural constraints even by simply inserting planters or elements of encumbrance.
Whether you want to proceed with the construction inside a condominium or in an independent house proceed with the necessary structural checks to the terrace and the property by turning to a specialist technician.
Keep in mind that in case you are planning to create a veranda or similar, it will be good to check through the technical office of the municipality of origin regarding any authorizations to be requested.
Types of garden on the terrace
When it comes to creating a garden on the terrace, and therefore a garden in a suggestive hanging version with an adjoining panorama, you can choose between two different types of project, one that is easier to implement and consequently cheaper, and the other that is more demanding and expensive but with an evocative result:
In the first case it will be a matter of furnishing and designing the external space without using structural upheavals. You will have to carefully study the plan and start by identifying the areas of interest, for example the one that will be used as a table, deckchair or, on the contrary, only green. If you want a good dose of privacy, create a sort of green fence exploiting the plants.
In the second case you will decide instead to create a real turf, in short, a garden in full order naturally on the terrace. It will be necessary, as it is easy to guess, to proceed with the insulation of the floor and the drainage of the soil and water, relying therefore on experts in the field.
After a few small suggestions of a decidedly more technical nature, we are ready to discover countless and versatile terrace garden projects that can be a perfect source of inspiration for you.
