Did you also do the concrete patio? How were the different levels poured?
What color did you use for the concrete?
hello! thank you for your question....yes we designed the concrete slab. actually it is one contiguous
contiguous pour of concrete with "knock outs" installed in the form during the pour...the knock outs are removed after the concrete has almost cured, leaving the gap and giving the sense of a floating slab.

japanese maple is called acer palmatam beni kawa
the floating concrete courtyard, the jap maple and timber paneling under eaves
Both trees look to be japanese maples. There are two different varieties, the red one being a crimson queen.
These are custom concrete retaining walls. Thanks for your interest!
Yes, these are custom concrete retaining walls. They are still

do you know if the planters will crack due to weather with time? was color added to the concrete of planters?
also, are these concrete pavers? if not what are they? Thank you!
standard 24x24 concrete pavers. The concrete planters were not colored, but they were sacked to fill in the holes from the concrete pour. As the NW climate is moderate, there should not be excessive heating or cooling that would encourage the concrete to crack. In addition the concrete planters were designed
I don't know what the deal is with these pavers, but mine stain like you wouldn't believe. It's a patio near a silver maple and the leaves stain the pavers every fall. It fades come Spring (looks like hell all winter) but never looks as clean and nice as it did immediately

I am assuming the walls are form lined poured concrete. Can you tell me how the color was achieved?
Thank you. I assumed it was some kind of concrete siding. Vertical poured concrete, interesting.
That looks like board form poured concrete.
I think u r referring to the form poured concrete. The forms are made with 2 x 4 boards.
The striations in the concrete are caused by the forms that framed the concrete when it was being poured. I think the gold color on the walls is from the sun projecting through the trees. Check out more on reinforced concrete: http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/364290/list/Material-Choices--High-Marks
give side walk of the house a roof, and create an open window with a ledge like a fast food counter connected to kitchen.

The steps don't seem to be made of individual stones or pavers. It looks like they might be concrete, but they seem "softer" - maybe individually cut stones for each step? Would love to know what they are.
That is an acer palmatum or Japanese Maple.
The steps are exposed aggregate concrete. The steps were in place along with the path from the garage to the front door when we were hired to install the walls and the softscape elements (plants/grass/soil work). There were a few modifications to
good combination of rough cut veneer with concrete
Here is an example of concrete steps
I like what I think is the Japanese Maple in the yard.

The concrete walls are striking! This is a great idea. Can we execute something like this?
scored stucco or concrete walls?

The tree is a Japanese Maple, but I have no idea about the shrub. The owner installed after the house was completed.
The squares are 4'-0 x 4'-0 and are poured right on a prepared sand and gravel bed. The concrete bonds with the gravel and the cars move so slowly over them so they don't move.
Straight walkway from street as well. Simple plain concrete.

materials are Arizona Sandstone. The pavers are 1-1/2" thick set on a concrete base slab. The walls and mailbox are constructed out of cement block with a ledger style sandstone veneer. The pots are custom with a colored concrete additive to be complimentary with the adjacent materials.
question. If you are asking what is the pink flowering plant directly under the trees, they are Penstemon, an perenial flower. The trees are Japanese Maples or Acer Palmatums.
The two trees are matching Japanese Maples, or by the botanical name "Acer palmatum"
I like the darker Japanese maple and the vincas and salvia in the border edging below the planters
