      My apologies. The house was remodeled and painted as a separate project and we did not participate in the selection of paint colors.

      My house is very similar - our color is Storm Cloud by Sherwin Williams

      Can anyone provide the paint color of the exterior? thank you

      Martha I think this design would look great on the front of your house. You just need to be mindful of the porch area and make it ample enough for circular movement of wheelchair and perhaps others. I agree that you should incorporate the ramp behind the front right planter being mindful of the amount of slope so that coming to the house will not be too difficult. Not sure if you will need a handrail depends on local code.

      All the 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.

      Thanks - that helps a lot. Custom pots - wow!

      I am not sure if I understand you 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.

    What did you use for the edging around your flower beds?

      Most of the time we specify Trex, which is a composite deck material. It is a flexible, durable and long lasting material. It's cost can be double of conventional laminated wood headerboard, but we have found that the wood will eventually degrade and need replacement after some 10 years. On occassion we will specify metal headerboards which are also durable and flexible.

      The stone is Arizona Sandstone which comes in numerous shades. This particular shade is called "Buckskin" and it is laid in an "Ashlar" pattern on the paving

      Do you know if the house is also Arizona Sandstone and was painted?

      All three trees are Japanese Maples. The tree to the right is a Red Japanese Maple, or Acer palmatum 'atropurpureum'.

      Nah, I'm not in the desert. In a lawn it will probably be to moist for Palo Verde.

      I believe more than the sun, the saline water in soCal is the main culprit. Not to say the afternoon sun won't burn the leaves. I have a few in pots and water them w/distilled H2O, and they do fine. They get AM sun only and stay burn free until Sept. There beautiful thru the majority of the growing season, and good enough for me. I live in zone 22. Here my daytime highs ave. 87 in July & Aug. I don't see the heat having much to do with it in coastal SoCal. They grow well in the SE and the summer temps and sun intensity have little to do with their success.
