|Planter Box Waterproofing|
|Planters provide an elegant
way to display a variety of flowers however, planters made of decorative
stone or brick are prone to leaking around the seams and joints and in
most cases seepage of water takes place through the roof slab thus
damaging the roof slab and causing corrosion of reinforcement. The water
leaking out of these crevices is laden with minerals and other deposits
that can cause stains. It's easy to prevent these issues by
waterproofing the inside walls of planter, so the water will only drain
out the bottom as intended.
The planters on a roof garden may be designed for a variety of functions and vary greatly in depth to satisfy aesthetic and recreational purposes. These planters can hold a range of ornamental plants: anything from trees, shrubs, vines, or an assortment of flowers. As aesthetics and recreation are the priority they may not provide the environmental and energy benefits of a green roof. Planting on roof tops can make urban living more self-sufficient and make fresh vegetables more accessible to urban people. The urban kitchen garden concept works on the potted plant model; it averts the bottlenecks of waterproofing of entire roofs, the major hassle in establishing a terrace garden. One can have the vegetable farm on their terrace, where they can grow everything in pots with proper waterproofing and drainage system. But all theserequired a proper waterproofing system.
