We're talking with DecorGirl Lisa Smith about her roof garden to find out the real-deal of putting a garden on top of your house.

The romance and earth-friendly appeal of a roof garden can bump up against practicality of installation, maintenance, and those little surprises that we haven't yet thought of yet.

So last month, when we saw a blog post about living with a roof garden, we were hooked. We've always been fascinated by garden roofs, and had to know more.

And we're looking forward to talking with the blogger Lisa, who is an interior designer and artist who shares the real world of interior design on her blog DecorGirl.net.

"A roof with living plants does require weeding about once or twice a season, because birds like to “drop” seeds of unintended plants.  A once a year sprinkle with season long fertilizer helps to keep the plants looking luscious." --Lisa, DecorGirl
