Beautiful!! How do you irrigate the moss? - We live in a pretty hot area of California and would love to do this around our pool but are concerned with irrigation. We want to put our wooden outdoor furniture on it, as shown in your picture. Do you use a drip system? Thanks!

yes this is a netafin drip system however this is not moss it is Dymondia which is drought resistant and can handle foot traffic.

Next time you do a project like this would you be interested in kiln-fired art tile? Please see lots of photo on my Houzz profile page for ideas. I love to have the chance to work with you on future projects

Lounge chairs are a great alternative to a chair or bench. Basking in the sun would quickly become a favored activity in a space like this, so make sure you get a separate chair for each member of your family if you want to avoid daily arguments!
ds design studio added this to Get the Look: Spanish-Mediterranean Courtyard
3. Hardscaping. The emphasis is on the usable living space; plants are used to enhance the patios and tends to be on the perimeter and in containers. This patio is made of peach-toned flagstone with the spaces filled with soft ground cover. The lounge chairs face a luxurious pool with a cobalt-blue tiled wall fountain.
