    Sorry… I do not have record of the wall color. This was painted over smooth trowelled stucco.

I also would love to know the spiky plants by wall and the grass in the foreground. Thanks.

    How big does the furcraea macdougalii grow? I live in La Puente Area in SoCal.

    This is indeed an impressive plant when mature and can optimally reach 20-30 ft. after forming a trunk. It is monocarpic meaning it will die after flowering.

    Curious to know what the opaque material is you are using in the gate. And, do you know how well it is holding up with the climate there?

    Looks as new as the day it was installed (4-5 years ago). It was specified as opaque tempered glass.... I know it is glass.... it's certainly opaque .. assuming it is tempered.

I really like this, it's more interesting than the typical wall, maybe have these plantings on the outside?
