Residential Forecourt entry garden and fountain

8x16-inch adobe pavers using the textured side of the paver.
Laid in a herringbone pattern on a hexagonal, waterproofed,
reinforced concrete slab. Fountiain is faced with imported tiles
from the San Miguel de Allende region of Mexico. Hand-carved wood bench is also from Mexico.

Where is the fountain purchased from?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Try Green Goddess on East Bell Road, Phoenix, Arizona. The tiled basin and walls were custom made with tiles from Mexico.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Southwestern Garden Style
Adobe and tile are timeless choices for paving. Combining them allows you to break up the expanse of the adobe and add a pop of color. This planting space is small but effective, and siting the bench opposite the fountain invites guests and residents to stop and relax a bit.

neat foyer/ walkway area before you get inside the home, maybe there's a peek a boo corner where the koi pond starts and goes under the edge into a larger pond out front. Prob won't work with the front door design, but I like the idea.
