Hi there, they are all plants which can cope with the heat and wind on a roof terrace. We used Olive standard trees, lavender, Salvia nemorosa Caradonna and Viola cornuta blue. I hope this helps,

Hi, the garden sofa was from John Lewis and yes, I seem to remember that it was quite comfortable. Sarah, Hampstead Garden Design

Rooftop lounging If you can manage to wrestle an outdoor sofa up onto your roof terrace (I can’t imagine the logistics involved) you will instantly create a second living room to decamp to in the summer months. I can’t think of anything nicer than lounging here with a cool drink and a good book on a balmy summer afternoon.
Jennifer Louise Ebert added this to 10 Clever Ideas for Tiny Gardens
Create an outdoor room Kit out your tiny balcony or modest courtyard as you would a room in your home. Here, simple decking and generous, sofa-style seating turn a small outdoor space into a sociable hub, for you and your friends to enjoy. Add potted plants around the borders to soften the look and provide some natural colour.See 10 ways to create an indoor/outdoor space

Show people how they can live in your homeYou’re not just selling bricks and mortar, you’re also selling a lifestyle, so create a space they won’t be able to resist. Turn a barren patio into an outdoor entertaining space, present that unused reception as a family-friendly dining space or show a box room as a smart home office.10 clever ideas for small gardens
Jo Leevers added this to Small Courtyards For Year-round Enjoyment
Stick to a single colourThis compact terrace works as an extra room because it doesn’t try to do too much. There’s not enough space for big trees or complicated schemes, so flowers in a single colour lift the mood, providing an easy setting for meals or drinks outside. Twin olive trees add variety.TELL US…Have you transformed a small courtyard? Please share your tips and photos in the Comments below.
Victoria Harrison added this to 10 Great Design Ideas for Tiny Terraces
Keep your colour palette simpleWhen space is tight, a restricted colour and planting palette will really come into its own, creating drama and impact. The repetition of just two types of plant in neat raised planters, as seen here, arguably creates much more impact than a bigger mix of plants would provide. Combined with a luxurious corner sofa, comfy armchair and a parasol for sunny days, this terrace has luxury tied up. See 8 winning patio ideas to transform your garden
