Rooftop Retreat


Need more privacy from your neighbors? Here is a great patio idea. Acting as natural screens, lush plantings of graceful ornamental grasses (Pennisetum), vines (sweet potato vine) and colorful perennials in raised planters ensure privacy from the neighbors while providing a superb backdrop. Additionally, they help to absorb urban noises and offer a harmonious, fresh and lively contrast to the dark chocolate pergola, the light tan floor and the sleek and modern coffee-colored all-weather wicker furniture.

This rooftop has been recreated by MB Design & Build into a cozy and inviting spot in which to relax and entertain, night and day.
