We strung a cable from the roof of the house (on the left) to the roof of the garage (on the right) and tied the light strings to it.

Depends whether you are up on the Colorado plateau like Albuquerque (which is 4600 ft and up) and north of that, or south of that--much warmer at the lower elevations, latitude.

Hello. The homeowners used slate for this patio floor. It comes in many different colors and they chose some with warm golden variations.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lush landscaping creates a private hangout near the outdoor fireplace. This is one of Erin's favorite spots because it offers a comfortable, serene yet secluded atmosphere. Orange bougainvillea bursts with color, and party lights from a previous event still hang. Every year the couple throws a party for the Oscars, with guests enjoying the show on a large outdoor movie screen. Patio lounge chairs: Restoration Hardware
Frank Organ added this to Orange in the Garden: Do You Dare?
In a previous image we saw a stunning orange barbecue with the planting as the supporting act, but here the use is totally the opposite. The garden is composed of mainly neutral colors — the walls, paving and even the furniture cushions are all very conservative — yet it’s brought alive with the dazzling orange flowers of the bougainvillea planted on either side of the stone barbecue.
