Thanks for your question. I'm sorry but our client chose the furniture after the project was completed so I don't know the name or source.

Thanks for your question. Our client purchased the furniture themselves on this project so I'm sorry I don't know the brand.

Thanks for your question. The grasses around the patio are 'Hameln' Fountain Grass while the three grasses on the other side of the wall are 'Northwind' Switch Grass.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cassy Aoyagi, FormLA Landscaping added this to Draw a Crowd With a Fire Pit
Use structure. The shape and structure of the fire pit itself can also encourage appropriate respect.
Frank Organ added this to Circle Round for Great Garden Design
I am passionate about using geometric forms in garden designs, but circles are not always easy. If not used carefully, they can become rather artificial, grating against the other features of the design. Where circles are used, they must have a visual or practical purpose. Here we see an almost perfect use of the circle, which acts not only as a full stop in the design, but as a practical setting for a seating and conservation area and also as a viewing platform overlooking the garden.

This has geometric form because it uses circles and squares. The circles are smooth and event, and the rectangular shapes have clean, sharp lines.
