Abstract

The urban communities are facing the problem of pollution in towns. The atmosphere is much heated with the sunshine. The presence of CO2 , CO , the pollution gases from industries, vehicles is also a reason for heating atmosphere. In urban areas the cultivation area i.e. “green area “is decreasing and concrete area is increasing. The CO2, generated by various sources is not converted to oxygen by plants with photo synthesis process. The buildings get heated by direct sunlight on roofs. The cooling machines, equipment’s, accessories evolving chloro floro carbons which are much dangerous to human health. To avoid the dangers of heat and pollution the buildings should be cooled with natural processes like the designing eco friendly buildings to grow some plants on its roof . Such roof cultivation is called rooftop cultivation. This roof top cultivation is passive, eco friendly. It conserves the energy and water, improves air and water quality, absorbs solar radiation, little amount of food can also be grown, the beauty of building can also be an aesthetic. The basic design in rooftop gardening includes a water proof membrane, a root barrier, a drainage system, filter cloth. The main advantage of the rooftop gardening is that, this building will have a long life when compared to the ordinary roofing. In this paper a model rooftop gardening procedures, plantations, photosynthesis effect, design calculations, the production of agriculture products are discussed.
