This Is The One Feature Your First Home Should Have Instead Of A Backyard

Does your house or apartment have one of these?

When looking for a home, Aussies tend to favour properties with a backyard. However, that’s all about to change.


While historically, those who live in apartments have had to give up on having any kind of outdoor space, a new trend in property has overtaken the popularity of a backyard.

Rooftops.

Why? First of all, there’s the potential for an epic view. Also, it’s lower maintenance and you can still have a little garden up there.
