Is the wroth iron arch specially fabricated or can it be obtained as a ready-made piece? Please share vendor. - Wonderful garden. Inspiring! The design is artistic, refined, and very sophisticated. Very beautiful.

Very sorry for the late reply!

The wrought iron arch was made custom for this job.

Yes you can find quite a few prefabricated iron arches, some with quite good quality while also costing much less than a custom one. This arch (and another on the back side of the house) were built to be complimentary to the larger iron trellis system in the back yard. (added a couple of photos for reference)

In case it might help you, below is the contact info of a great custom wrought iron builder:

Saddleback Valley Ornamental Iron (SVI)
Phone: (949) 830-9513

Hope this helps! Again, sorry for the delay.

charlotte metzler,

Thank you so very much for the nice compliment.

Below is a direct link to the pot's 'cut sheet' and consequently the company's website.

There is a wide variety of possible colors and textures. this is the 'sandstone' finish.

Please note that the spicket was added to the urn and it did not come as shown in this photo. Not very complicated to add, but does require a decent contractor to drill for spicket, provide both irrigation, water supply, and drainage to the Urn. With all that... there is not a lot of room for a large plant or major root ball / depth of soil etc. This is why I had only one accent plant in each Urn. Typically in my pottery planting I like to have a focal upright accent plant, cascading vine type plant, and color perennial.. but in this case, the simplicity seems to work.

Best of luck!

thank you Drew. What would I have to do to get a plan on how to do the pots and the water feature? I can kind of work out in my head how to pump the water in and out, but I would hate to make a bobo and find that I did something wrong. Let me know what I would have to do to get this from you

Vanessa Brunner added this to 35 Fabulous Fountains
I like the way the illusion that this faucet-like fountain provides. It's almost as if someone watered the shrub too much, and it's perpetually spilling water out.
