Garden and terrace in town: create a relax corner on the roof
Let's start right away with the question of flooring. The floor covering of a garden or terrace in the city is most often tiled or wood. For the exterior tiles, you can choose, depending on the style of decoration you prefer, between several shades and aspects of the tiles, including an imitation wood exterior tile that is a good solution for those who like the look of the wood, but prefer to have a tile floor covering. If, on the other hand, you prefer a wooden deck, here are some tips that will allow you to make sure that your flooring will be aesthetic and durable. According to the opinion of specialists in the layout of wooden terraces, this material has the advantage of visually transforming your outdoor space. Not only is it natural and very durable when installed properly, but it can enlarge the space visually. This tip is particularly useful for terraces and gardens on the roofs of buildings in town because, as we know, they are often small. Additional advice for the choice of flooring for your urban terrace: think about the lighting too, because it is often placed at the time of the installation of the flooring, so that if you want to have a good lighting for the evenings outside, you should make the choice at that time.

For a more interesting and attractive city terrace floor covering, you can also play with a mix of different materials. This option can give very nice results and also serve to delimit different spaces in your rooftop garden. It is therefore a good choice if you want to build a roof garden with a seating area and a summer kitchen area, for example. Similarly, the combination of two materials can be used to delimit a garden space from that of a living room, etc. If you choose this option for the flooring of your patio in the city, know that you can increase its effect by creating several levels in the garden. Thus, a rooftop garden can have a first level with tile flooring and a second, higher level, made of wood. You will find ideas for the flooring of this type in the photos that we offer. To finish with the subject of the flooring, let us also remember that the rooftop garden can be decorated with turf or grass and other materials. This kind of flooring can be useful for roof terraces that have a play area for children or those decorated in Zen style, for example.
