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.

6. Center courtyard with fountain. Reminiscent of the California Spanish-style missions, this formal courtyard is located in the middle of a compound and features a prominent fountain.

To the extent there are any trees in the courtyard, would prefer something that stays green all year - that area needs to look pretty much the same all year. Also like this style fountain, but add crown jets around the edge?
