The fast paced and busy society in urban living can take a toll on a person, sometimes we yearn to get away and get close to a more natural place, that is why there are parks present in cities, but with office work, you don't really get to have time to drive to a park and enjoy the scenery, maybe once or twice a month, but we all know that's not enough. http://www.gardenandponddepot.com/

It is very easy to set up a roof garden, as all you need are pots, soil and well, seeds of course, and like I said, they require little maintenance, except for the occasional removal of weeds and watering, sometimes the rain does that for you. For small spaces, you can choose to have tiered plants to make the most out of your area. And finally add chairs and table so you and your neighbors can enjoy the green scenery or have a party in your rooftop, instant all-around decorations http://www.gardenandponddepot.com/

There are also a lot of other edible plants and veggies that can be grown indoors, such as: Miniature Oranges/Citrus Trees : They are very easy to grow and can bear fruit all year long! Herbs : Basil, Rosemary, Parsley and Chives are just some of the herbs you can grow indoors, although they require sunlight they dont require as much watering Tomatoes and Pepper : They are both grown the same way, they like their soil moist as dry soil stresses them and makes it hard for them to bear fruit. http://www.gardenandponddepot.com/
