The stone is Arizona Sandstone which comes in numerous shades. This particular shade is called "Buckskin" and it is laid in an "Ashlar" pattern on the paving

Most of the time we specify Trex, which is a composite deck material. It is a flexible, durable and long lasting material. It's cost can be double of conventional laminated wood headerboard, but we have found that the wood will eventually degrade and need replacement after some 10 years. On occassion we will specify metal headerboards which are also durable and flexible.

I am not sure if I understand you question. If you are asking what is the pink flowering plant directly under the trees, they are Penstemon, an perenial flower. The trees are Japanese Maples or Acer Palmatums.

All the materials are Arizona Sandstone. The pavers are 1-1/2" thick set on a concrete base slab. The walls and mailbox are constructed out of cement block with a ledger style sandstone veneer. The pots are custom with a colored concrete additive to be complimentary with the adjacent materials.

Martha I think this design would look great on the front of your house. You just need to be mindful of the porch area and make it ample enough for circular movement of wheelchair and perhaps others. I agree that you should incorporate the ramp behind the front right planter being mindful of the amount of slope so that coming to the house will not be too difficult. Not sure if you will need a handrail depends on local code.

My apologies. The house was remodeled and painted as a separate project and we did not participate in the selection of paint colors.

The two trees are matching Japanese Maples, or by the botanical name "Acer palmatum"

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Amy Renea added this to Not Your Average Ranch
Add architectural elements to the landscape. Accentuate plantings with large raised beds and a matching mailbox post. Notice how the three brick structures create a triangle and balance the pathway; all three elements working together to draw your eye to the front door.
Vanessa Brunner added this to 5 Pro Tips for the Best Home Exterior Updates
Marry the house to its landscape. The architects and designers we talked with are almost unanimous — landscaping is what makes the biggest difference in exterior appeal. Whether you're aiming for a quick freshening up or a complete front yard overhaul, take the time to come up with a basic plan for your landscape. Aim for a good balance of lawn and plants. "Avoid just putting sod down and calling it a day," says Kyle Sheffield of LDA Architecture & Interiors. "Create a transition from the house to the grade by using species that descend in height from the house. This will give the appearance that the house is married to the landscape rather than plopped on a lot."Look for the sight lines in your yard. Get a visual from the curb or drive by the space you want to update. "Identify the 'where,'" says Kim Thibodeau of Paradise Restored Landscaping. "The viewpoint that will pull you and your guest outside." If you don't have time or a budget to plant anything new, do a big cleanup. Detail trees and shrubs, and edge flower beds. Add topsoil and mulch to even out the grade, and weed and get rid of dead plantings.
