Outdoor Dining Terrace

Got rid of all the grass, installed some drought tolerant plants, added a water feature and created a raised dining terrace with privacy screens in an otherwise exposed back yard.

What is Maintanence required for wood used and how do you maintain this color since cedar turns grey . Thank you

The wood already looks weathered. You would use a natural sealant every year to keep it looking good. Something like a deck water seal.

Where can I buy the fountain?

This is an off the shelf fountain kit from Aquascape. Just go to, and look for their fountain catalogue. There may be a supplier in your area, or, they can ship to you. The unit comes with a basin, the pump and the fountain. This one is made from plastic, but they also sell natural basalt fountain triads as well. Hope this helps.
