Bobby and Kathy Saul, owners of Saul Nurseries, decided to enhance their woodland backyard by installing a naturalistic pool and spa with infinity edge. The pool pump shed is highly visible so they opted for a vegetative cover to blend the small structure into the landscape. A very simple system was constructed using 8 mil plastic pond liner as the waterproofing and ItSaul Natural products, including PermaTill expanded slate as the 4" deep growing medium.
Swimming PoolBlending into Nature
The pool pump shed was sited under a large canopy of evergreens and deciduous trees, so they chose a palette of five sedums known to perform well in shade. This small test greenroof will serve to see how the following sedums fare under dappled sunlight: Sedum makenoi 'Limelight', S. rupestre 'Angelina', S. tectractinum, S. grisbachii, and the Georgia native Sedum ternatum 'Chestatee'.
