Non-slip composite decking retains the natural feel of timber decking to balcony and roof designs, but with the longevity and non-slip qualities of wood-polymer materials. Being much safer and slip-resistant, composite decking resists the elements and requires very little maintenance over the years. Thanks to decking pedestals, composite decking can be installed within pretty much any balcony or roof terrace setting. Adjustable and raised, paving and decking pedestals allow for full drainage of hard surfaces, as well as allowing easy access of cabling or other services running underneath. In addition, aluminium edging designed especially for roof garden designs, such as RoofEdge from ExcelEdge, provides designers and developers with the option to include sharp landscape edging, again, with hard surface drainage fully taken into consideration.
When properly designed, balcony seating has some benefits worth considering. Balconies can solve the problem of future expansion as the congregation grows and can enable a church with limited land to expand "up" rather than "out". In fan-shaped sanctuaries a balcony can increase the seating by almost 50%. A future balcony should be master-planned from the start with the major structure completed during the sanctuary construction. A removable wall can temporarily hide this unfinished space.
While landscaping can add immensely to the value, beauty and comfort of a church site, most architectural firms do not provide detailed landscaping design in their scope of services unless specifically requested by the owner. Many jurisdictions will require a rudimentary landscaping plan consisting of a site plan indicating the location, type and size of new and existing trees and shrubs, areas of sod and mulch, as well as an erosion control plan. It is now common for permit authorities to require landscaping islands in the parking areas based upon the amount of pavement. These islands are usually located at the ends of parking rows. Landscaping islands, however, can become an impediment to snow removal. In transition yards (a green area separating the church parking lot or buildings from adjoining residential or commercial property) a screen of trees and shrubs is also often required by permit authorities.
Either it is a kitchen balcony or a bedroom balcony; you can make it a restful place with a little sense of gardening. A little effort and modifications can turn your drab area of concrete into a place where not only you will like to spend time, but other people also admire it. Designing a balcony garden doesn′t require much effort; just adjusting few items and a splash of colors can bring life to your dull balcony.
