    Thanks! Aren't they amazing? The pottery is from a local nursery in Tucson - Mesquite Valley Growers. Good luck!

    Thank you! The spool is approx. 15'x10' - the equipment is hidden in a walled off area right outside of the wall - sunken a bit.

9. Carry a color theme throughout the garden. When designing the interior of our homes, we select elements that repeat a particular color scheme, which is pleasing to the eye and helps to tie various design elements together. The same is true of using color in the garden. Colorful containers can be used for this purpose, along with colorful seat cushions, umbrellas, a brightly painted wall and plants of a particular color.

A Desert Oasis in ArizonaThis well-planned backyard includes a pool, an open fireplace, an outdoor kitchen, a dining area and plenty of room to socialize and lounge.

Turquoise water, blue and orange walls and a bright red pot highlight the pool area. With sand and tan prominent in the house and the hardscape, these accents add a sense of fun and whimsy to the space.

The pool is technically called a "spool" — a small pool and a large spa combined into one. It can be kept cool for swimming, or warmed up to use with jets on colder nights. "The design centers on the idea that the walls of the pool become the backbone of the other two spaces," she says. Local pottery was filled with Agave weberi and loose pebbles for a casual effect.
