Roof Landscaping In Moscow

Moscow authorities are planning the further improvement of ecological situation in the city. For this they will encourage landing lawns, flowers and shrubs on the roofs. The city government will also determine the benefits which will make roof landscaping beneficial for building owners.

      As the head of the Department of Natural Resource Management Anton Kulbachevsky noted, "a new generation of materials and methods of waterproofing, which eliminates leakage" is now used to build houses, but not always. According to him, to make the use of such materials widespread, it is necessary to change the requirements for coatings used in all new buildings. Environmental rating will be elaborated for all capital districts. It will be open and is expected to affect the cost of apartments and investors' interest. Homeowners, who want to lay out a roof garden, will need to agree with each other. If it is a condo house and apartments are privatized, the roof is considered to be a common property.

      Homeowners association (HOA) or a managing company hired by tenants can become the formal recipient of the landscaping benefits. The roof can be greened in several ways: by laying a turf over it; by pouring ground and planting flowers, herbs and small shrubs or by arranging the flower tubs. Taking into account our climate, the best solution is to put the tubs with shrubs and flowers on the roof. In late spring, summer and early fall there will be an additional seating area, and in the winter, tubs can be removed on the stairwells or on the first floor, Izvestia reports.
