Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Pattern and shape of stone
Wood stove area
Fitting with house style
Use of old wood
Fountain from Louisiana sugar kettle
Curves and end of wall as a separate item on its own. The circle into circle flows nicely
Pergola style is lovely
Nice tie in from pergola to fireplace. Good consistent look
Stones embedded in ground gives it a softened look
Path with random large rocks and heavy foliage surrounding. Also love the fun painted rocks mixed in the pebbles
Boxwoods ling pebble path. This mat be a better look for a Texas courtyard rather than brick
Another different courtyard look
Could use lined up barrels of decreasing height to create "wall" between courtyard and fire pit.
