Manhattan Rooftop Porch And Garden

A family in Manhattan have created a roof-top paradise after building a front porch and garden on top of their six storey apartment. They decided to build it after a visit to their friends house 8 years ago.

“We were sitting on the porch, the lake was only 20 feet away, and I said, ‘That’s what I want — I’d love to have a porch,’ ” said Mr. Puchkoff, who is in his mid-60’s.

The 1,200sq/ft garden contains thousands of plants in 7" of lighweight soil which doesn't strain the wiehgt-bearing capacity of the roof.
