What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Within 30 Feet of Your House: Create a Firebreak — the "Lean, Clean and Green" ZoneClear a 30-foot area around your home, reducing flammable vegetation. To avoid the "scorched earth" look, work with inflammable floorings (such as tile and stone), mulch (such as gravel) and plants with low fuel/high moisture content (such as lawn and succulents). This home's courtyard provides a firebreak that uses noncombustible hardscape and less-flammable plants.
A fountain is always good; on a chilly evening, an outdoor fireplace might be even better. There's a blend of styles happening here. The fireplace is almost Mission-style in looks, while the fountain is more classic Italian. Even so, the mix of plants and the pavers tie the space together.
