Courtyard cover - Hi - love this courtyard and was wondering if you knew what kind of cover is providing shade? is it type of cover than can be closed or open? The whole house looks great though and I love this area especially. Thank you!

It is a great courtyard, I agree. I believe it is something clear or somewhat diffused; pretty sure it's not retractable. It might be made of fiberglass. This site has something similar: http://sepio.ca/

Lisa Hallett Taylor added this to My Houzz: Yard Seals the Deal for an Eichler Home
Most Eichler Homes include an atrium, which blends the exterior and interior, provides access to other parts of the house and creates cross ventilation. Shade-loving plants grow well in Eichler atriums, as do succulents.

Potted plants within the planters--great idea, and a way to add additional color. Great if you might need to relocate a picky plant.
