Kim’s colour crazy green – our terrace garden has it all

We have a lawn on the terrace and a few pots with roses and alamanda. This lawn needs least maintenance.  The only thing we need to do is to get rid of weeds from time to time.

This lawn keeps the hall downstairs pretty cool. That was one of the reasons why we developed this garden on the terrace.

At the time of constructing the house I had asked the engineer to increase the thickness of the slab by half an inch to take the load of the soil and also to maintain a slope to take care of water retention.

Terrace lawns use a technique to safeguard leakage of water  and for that one first needs to have a rexine sheet below on which brick pieces and sand is spread and over that rich soil is laid for the lawn to grow.

I have been writing for various sites some of which have disappeared.  I have several interests including writing, photography, gardening, reaching out, cooking.  I have a blog which needs a bit of revamping and when I get some time I will go there and do justice.

I love people and have been responsible for getting together several groups such as class mates, seniors, orphaned kids and family
