Prairie rooftop garden


This beautiful wild prairie rooftop garden is located on the 9th floor of an apartment building in the heart of Brussels. To add volume and height and create the feeling of a 'real garden', we combined gravel with plants in soil and in containers. To attract bees and birds, we worked with flowers, climbing plants and shrubs with berries, which all share a beautiful discoloration throughout different seasons. The prairie garden is colorful and at its best in Summer and Autumn. And during Winter, perennials add a lush touch of green.
