Construction of Terrace Gardens
People living in Bungalows usually fancy having a Terrace Garden. Some people have their terrace Garden idea incorporated into the design in the construction phase, which is the right time to go for it; whereas some people initiate the construction of a Terrace Garden on a normal flat roof which was not meant to take moisture and weight of the garden.
Two major problems arise because of the unmonitored construction of Terrace Gardens:
- Development of Cracks in the roof
- Leakage of water
Usually, people tend to ignore the fact that the weight imposed on the roof by the Terrace Garden has to be properly waterproofed and taken care of if they wish to avoid further construction problems.
In this article, we will briefly go through the steps for the construction of a Terrace Garden and also the waterproofing technique.
