Gallery: Murray Legge’s Gorgeous Pool House Is Topped Off With a Green ...

 

The rooftop garden sits above floor to ceiling windows that makes the roof covered in coneflowers, black-foot daisies, and native grasses appear as if it is floating in the air. From the main house, the pool house virtually disappears, showing only a rich rug of vegetation. With more than ten inches of soil, the roof garden mimics the natural way the earth absorbs rainwater; drain holes cut into the metallic frame that anchors the garden act like boat scuppers, allowing excess water to flow out.
