Trends in garden design on the roof are popular in recent times, especially the buildings in big cities such as Hanoi, Saigon. Most roofs are covered with glass, steel and concrete – all of which are heat-absorbing materials that lead to the space beneath the heated roof. Using air conditioners forever is not a good way to resolve the situation. Because of this, many townhouses have a roof garden design filtered fresh air and cool down the room under the roof.
