    Yes, a 1" diameter tube should be fine but there might already be a hole in your fountain if you're not doing custom. I'm not sure how many hp the pump has, sorry.

    We have a brick-colored 20' Coolaroo in the back courtyard. Overstock has deals on stock colors and smaller sizes. Highly recommended (I'm in NM too, but as he says, take it down before the snows...)

    It's a brand cool-a-roo sun shade but you can also search sun sails, or sun shades and many options should come up.

    Hi - I don't live in the same place where this project was done so can't get you any images of the space at night. However, I've been there at night and it's beautiful. Up lights in trees and on fountain. Yes, the stone is a water feature. I've attached a few images so you can see it better.

    The sun sail is from Kool-A-Roo.com. It's a polypropylene like material which allows filtered light to come through but breaks the sun's intense heat. They come in various sizes and colors. I've used them on several projects and have been very happy with every application.

    It's English Ivy. It was selected because it keeps it's leaves in the Winter.

    I really love the Mediterranean feel this patio has. I love that you installed something that will give you extra protection from the sun. Lately, I have been wanting more shade in my yard, but I don't want to build something to give me more shade. Do you know what the fabric thing you are using is called? http://www.seriousaboutshade.com.au

    Thank you Penelope. That shade sail came from Kool -A -Roo. There are numerous sizes and colors. Very affordable as well.

    I'd recommend the the dormer match whatever the facade material is on the walls of the house. Send me a photo when you're done so I can see what you decided on. Good luck.

    Flora Grubb is in San Francisco so that's good. You should have no problem with a succulent wall in LA. Good Luck.

    Thanks! It's green metal edging that is installed with stakes. It allows you to make the curves as shown here. Home Depot should have it. Very reasonably priced. The edging and stakes are sold separately. Good luck.

    The lighting came from Rejuvenation. It was 5-6 years ago so if they have been discontinued they have others that are similar.

    We carry similar Gooseneck lights, integrated with the latest LED technology. Powder coated and UL listed for outdoors.

    This sun sail came from Cool-A-Roo and comes in several sizes and colors. You can search sun sails on Google and numerous companies come up.

    Hi - It was a custom made ottoman. It splits in half so that I can provide 2 additional seats as seating overflow for this space.

    Yes, it's a custom fountain that I designed for this client. It's a 700 lb. boulder, drilled to add a hole that sits on top or a platform with a basin of water underneath. A pump that sits in the basin has a tube tube that runs up through the rock to create a plume of water. Pretty easy set-up except for placing the rock. I had to hire a crane to drop it in place after it was drilled. Worth it all since it turned out so beautiful and the client loves it. Good luck!

    Haven't had any floods yet but the Synlawn product helps displace water so that it seeps back into the ground.

    The pine tree is a Blue Spruce and they can become very large. They also need to be grown in a higher elevation where they get a good hard frost every year and they need regular water. The ivy growing on the wall is English ivy and was selected because it keeps it's leaves year round. The maple is a miniature Japanese Maple and they can get 10-15 feet wide depending on their location. They can be temperamental so you should talk to your local nursery about it and all the trees we are discussing. Good luck!

    Hello - The ground surface on the outdoor space is a flagstone. It comes in numerous colors and is available in various shapes and sizes. You can chisel larger pieces into smaller pieces as shown here.

    It's just the standard metal edging with stakes you can buy at Home Depot or Lowe's. It's flexible so has the capability to bend to make the curves.

Using a shade sail with four or more points allows for more curves. With more tension created, a crisp, tight look can be achieved. This Santa Fe, New Mexico-style courtyard garden is the perfect size for a shade sail to stretch from one side to the other. While you don’t need to remove a shade sail when summer’s over, taking down your sail for the winter months will help extend its life. This also allows low sun to enter your home and warm it up.

The couple this backyard in New Mexico belongs to were inspired by the vibrant ambience of Mexico, and incorporated that theme into their space.The outdoor room features woven furniture, which the couple chose to mimic the look of a traditional interior dining room. The shade sail overhead offers protection from the sun, the fountain on the left provides the soothing sounds of water, and the terra-cotta-colored feature wall displays a vertical garden of succulents.See more of this outdoor space

Paint a wall. A feature wall of bright color can inject personality into any room, and the same goes for a courtyard garden or roof terrace. So try painting a boundary wall to bring a bolt of year-round color to your exterior.

One thing that makes eating outdoors really special is bringing the conveniences of the inside to the outside. This inviting and intimate outdoor patio space includes a fireplace, art on the walls and a sideboard — things not usually associated with outside dining, but that enhance comfort and the sense of hospitality. Speaking of hospitality, if you’re like me and love to dine outdoors but don’t like sitting in direct sun, shade is an important factor. On this patio in sunny Santa Fe, New Mexico, a shade sail provides a cool sanctuary.Learn more about this outdoor dining room

If you have shade sails, it's time to put them up.
