Community Rooftop Gardens in Silver Oak sign now

We, the residents of Silver Oak Apartments would like to utilize our urban/suburban rooftop space to further beautify and improve the air quality of our environment. Currently, the rooftop space is left completely empty (save for water tanks) and the temperature of rooftops tends to rise above the actual air temperature, then radiating this heat back into the environment. In large cities (with tall buildings) the temperature increase that empty rooftops can cause is up to 4C.(1) In conclusion, the rooftop garden will help to improve air quality by reducing the suspended particulate matter, reducing air temperature indirectly by reducing the temperature of the roof by up to 50C.(2) Ultimately, gardens provide a place to relax for the residents and improve our health.
