Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Southwestern Garden Style
Sometimes the details can be simple. The deep terra-cotta steps turn what would be a plain flagstone patio into something special.

Before I even read your emails I looked at your photos and saw this great courtyard. Something like this would look great in the front. Start looking for interesting rocks or large branches, skulls (even road kill!) This is a nice ground cover between the stone.

I think I can get my guy to grasp that this concept is just fabulous!!! All of the tiny rocks around our home are red. Living surrounded by the majestical red rocks of Sedona, I feel like we should have different colored rocks in several areas, if any more at all.
