The fascia is a pre-finished rough facia board installed with the smooth side facing out. The drip edge is standard aluminum drip edge.

Exterior Materials? - It looks like FSC wood siding, welded steel plating around the roof, and possibly painted (or color-tinted) concrete fiberboard panels? Could you please confirm?

Wood type and stucco brand/color info please - Can you please tell me what this wood is and any stain put on it? Also, what color of exterior paint is this? The wood and stucco make an interesting duo. Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sometimes concrete can leave a home feeling cold, but this beautiful modern home looks warm and inviting with the help of rich surrounding colors.
4. The Sloped DrivewayThe challenge: Creating planting pockets that are easy to manage.Solution A: Combine a stepped pathway to one side of the drive with a series of built-in planters between the two.This design almost makes me wish I had a sloping driveway. It not only solves the problem of planting, but by incorporating a series of wide, shallow steps, the designer has made the journey on foot much more comfortable.The square and rectangular planters tie in with the motif used for the garage door and windows.If you build raised beds, you can keep the soil surface level, avoiding the problem of erosion after a heavy rainfall as well as allowing for deeper soil to support trees and larger shrubs. For added interest these could always be brightened with seasonal color, yet this simple approach is in keeping with the overall planting theme of the home.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to 6 Suggestions for Harmonious Hardscaping
Boldly embrace your hardscape. At times a bolder approach is the best approach. Here the designer has embraced the use of hardscaping by creating and wrapping planter boxes in the hardscape. The effective use of plant material helps to soften and balance this front yard. If this approach is too austere for you, consider softening the edges of the planters with a creeping and cascading ground cover.
