Andalusian Courtyard Fountain and Lounge

Precast concrete pavers and joints create a soft, sumptuous space. While permeable paving has grown quite popular, this treatment revives the home's historic look.

Hi there, the grass is watered with a low flow subsurface drip from Netafim. The emmitors are embedded in the 1/2" tubing and results in direct to root zone watering with no run off, evaporation or water waste. It also makes the surface of the grass more consistent lending to walking and laying furniture on top of to stay dryer. Thanks!

Plus, it is pretty annoying how people now use houzz to pitch their products........worst is that guy that thinks every wall should be a mural. Hope houzz doesn't get ruined like facebook did, keep vendors in their own area, unless specifically asked for help. Makes the designers and other original posters have to go back and correct what others are suggesting.

Porcelain tile with repetitive design outside fountain basin. Light blue green colored porcelain or glass tile inside. Looks like a poured concrete cap on the fountain basin. The Lights inside the fountain being so visible to the eye can be distracting.

Hi there, the grass is watered with a low flow subsurface drip from Netafim. The emmitors are embedded in the 1/2" tubing and results in direct to root zone watering with no run off, evaporation or water waste. It also makes the surface of the grass more consistent lending to walking and laying furniture on top of to stay dryer. Thanks!
