The sun is bright and the wind is crisp - enjoy Fall's perfect weather on your patio or rooftop terrace. A rooftop terrace is a great way to create an atmosphere for memorable home entertaining. When designing your rooftop terrace consider these tips:
Choose furniture that allows you to relax comfortably. Consider benches that are built into the perimeter, taking up less space and creating more room for other design elements.
Keep space open and easy to move around. Be sure not to choose large items that could be overwhelming and cause safety hazards.
Make sure everything is weather proof - design components should withstand the elements.
Add lighting for cooking, dining, and entertaining at night. Lighting is important for both safety and aesthetics. Rope lights can be tucked away to provide an ambient glow.
A decorative floor mat can bring color to the space. Consider a painted canvas, which is durable and weather resistant. Full size area rugs are also available.
Colorful accents like lush plants can add personality to any rooftop. Evergreens might be a nice choice for Fall. Or, plan for Spring and read more on full sun plantings.
Create a warm gathering place on your rooftop terrace with a barbecue or outdoor fireplace.
Tom Maddox has seen Rockville’s landscape change dramatically since he was a boy in the 1940s. “From the center of Rockville, you didn’t have to go three miles without encountering a working farm,” says Maddox, the third generation in a family of surveyors who’ve helped developers transform the city and its surroundings from a rural outpost in the 19th century into the thriving metropolitan suburb it is today. Yet Rockville’s pastoral legacy runs deep, where neighborhoods such as King Farm and North Farm refer to their previous incarnations, and Dawson Farm Park combines public open space with the property’s two original 19th-century farmhouse buildings.
