It looks like corrugated fiberglass over wood framing (part of the roof framing. You could achieve similar results with a double-walled polycarbonate product like Palram's Sunlite: http://www.palramamericas.com/sunlite

Windows around pond? - What is to the left of the pond? Are there windows on all 3 sides of it? Do you know the dimensions? We have the same entry and I love how this one looks, but we have windows all of the way around and french doors in the left corner behind this pond, and a big window to the left to master bedroom. I think it's a garage on this property though so I am thinking no windows there.

The grotto is 10 W by 20 D. The walk way is 10 W by 30 D. I hope that, and what Louise added is helpful. James

Great, thanks! Mine is about a 6'x30' entry walk and then, 10'x18' for the area where the pond is. Here are some pics of the our entry. I'd love to add to it :)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A landscape and pool architect installed this enchanting courtyard. The fluted glass sidelight by the front door came from REstore, and the transom glass is original.

Something like this would also work. Give the house more vertical.
