In today’s nurturing environment the impact of TERRACE GARDENING is much more important by which we could develop a healthy generations and provide the wealthy environment in their hands. Life in city is great for the most part-easy access to shopping and entertainment centers as well as better living conditions, which makes it an ideal place to live. There are drawbacks too, overcrowded, congested lanes, air and noise pollution etc. Greenery is becoming a thing of past. Trees are recklessly cut down to accommodate more houses. Cities are getting hotter and hotter and climate change more erratic. If the open rooftops is been covered it would help in reducing the temperature by 6 to 8 degrees.
There is a saying such that earn more and buy more but nowadays the quality of our lives has declined. It’s not just toxic air that we are breathing; the food that we eat is becoming equally toxic. Indiscriminate use of pesticides and fertilizers are causing birth defects and abnormalities, CANCER is on rise and yet we turn blind eye to our actions. This could be changed we the individuals are responsible for everything. A terrace garden is a great solution for anyone living in a crammed flat or house with no backyard. Terrace get plenty of sunshine .These are easy to maintain and are even great for growing organic vegetables and fruits setting up a flower bed. Terrace gardening is also highly therapeutic. Spend just half an hour in the morning and another half hour in the evening tending your plants. Your stress and anxiety will slowly disappear as will any breathing problems you have.
