The basin is not available for purchase and was a custom installed element specific to this project. It is built with a gunite base and a plastered basin much like a swimming pool would be constructed.

The white flowers that are growing in the foreground are White Mandevilla "Sun Parasol". They are supported by a decorative iron fence that is nearly obscured in the summer months when this plant is at its peak.

I really like the detail here of the two slim columns at the base of each arch, though I think in the end we'll just stick with something simpler like the picture above. Again, the fountain is something we'd like to include in the courtyard.
