What is the material on the inside of the framed gate of the courtyard - What is the material on the inside of the framed gate going into the courtyard?

The gate is a steel frame with cedar slats to match some of the exterior siding. I hope that answers your question, Thanks.

Thank you for the question. The gate is approximately 8'9" tall. It is constructed of 1x4 wood slats on a wood frame attached to a galvanized steel barn door track.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to The 3 Top Ways to Light Up Your Landscape
Path lights, bold style. Sometimes subtlety is called for; take the light fixture that recedes modestly into the plantings in the previous photo. In this landscape, however, the visual weight of the light fixtures, standing proud along the walkway, plays beautifully with the surrounding architecture, adding to the overall composition while drawing visitors up the walk to the front door.
Spry Architecture added this to Discover Modern Architecture's Appeal
Avoiding TrendsA few years ago, a magazine devoted an entire issue to Tuscan architecture. The problem was, the style purported to be Tuscan was merely an ordinary home wrapped in a Tuscan skin. For six months my phone rang with potential clients asking for Tuscan architecture. True architecture from Tuscany represents its place and environment. Tuscany has an ecology and readily available materials and stones. Tuscany has a history and a context. It makes little sense to design a Tuscan-skinned home in the Sonoran Desert.Here is a modern courtyard akin to the wonderful courtyards of true Tuscan architecture, illustrating that one can apply principles of good design, regardless of how ancient the architecture may be, in a modern context.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to How to Make Your Metal House Feel at Home in the Landscape
If the corrugated panels are prone to rust, the plant palette suggested for copper would apply.
