Hi Rick,

This is actually my front courtyard. Unfortunately,
the bricks were existing when I moved in, but are certainly a mix of
brick the previous series of owners had put in, Part of the house was
built in 1890, so it has a long history! Many are crumbling and will
need to be replaced when they get too bad. For now I chalk it up to
character!

When I want brick for a job that looks old, I purchase
brick that had been "tumbled". That softens the edges such as seen in
the Moorish Inspired Courtyard. If your local supplier caries a
"flash blend" that will add some variety to the color much more like you
see in my brick. Some brick suppliers can even ass a lime slurry to the
tumbling process to give it a white washed look.My supplier is Kinney Brick in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Georgann,

the paved surface material is indeed concrete. it was stamped, scored and acid etched with a concrete stain. it was done by a professional, but there may be kits that allow a home owner to do it. it is a tricky process. it should be sealed afterwards to protect it and bring out the color.

best of luck!

Catherine

thanks for asking! it is sandstone flagstone from Arizona cut to the length and width necessary. Many stone yards can bring this material in.

Lynn,
We are a zone 5 here in Santa Fe. I believe central Oregon actually has a similar climate to Santa Fe. Much of the plant material you see in this particular photo is planted in the pots, and these are tender annuals which will go with the first hint of frost.

The blue wall is a custom mixed Sto Elastomeric stucco. they have a great range of colors from their chart or can custom mix from a paint chip. look online for a local supplier.
