    Would you be able to provide an approximate square footage of the sitting areas both in front of the fireplace that looks to be on a lower level, as well the rod iron eating table area? Beautiful backyard!

    It's like a green shag carpet. I think it goes great with the setting. I'm curious how it holds up though. Florida weather can be a real pain so it's good to take caution when choosing any type of plants.

    We do it both ways depending on the look that we are going for. If you look at some of our other jobs, we have done entire walkways and patios with large slab flagstone on a gravel base

    We find it at our local vendors here, I am not where else it would be available but there are probably many other types that would look similar.

    Trovo molto interessante l' effetto, che nonostante l' utilizzo di molte tipologie di essenze riesce a dare un senso di ordinato, e anche nella manutenzione non troppo impegnativo.

    I would love to put the purple geraniums around our Linden tree but our neighborhood is overrun with rabbits. Do you know if geraniums are also 'bunny food'?

    Thank you! The walkway and patio surfaces are constructed with full-color Pennsylvania flagstone. Your local stone supply stores should be able to acquire the stone.

    Bethanneh, what specifically would you like to know? The light used is commonly referred to as a "wash" type fixture. We used low voltage lighting for this project.

    The stone wall was constructed using standard industry practices. A concrete footer is poured, with cinderblock stacked and mortared in place on top of the footer. Then the cinderblock is faced with the stone and the wall cap is secured.

    We purchase our lights through our local vendors. After you determine what brand of lighting you would like to use, you should be able to search for your local vendor(s) on the lighting company's website.

    The two bushes in the lower front are Buxus Green Velvet or more commonly known as Boxwoods. Although they will grow to a size of 3 - 4 feet in diameter, these will be routinely trimmed to maintain their current size.

Dylan Chappell Architects added this to How to Hire the Right Architect: Comparing FeesApr 22, 2014

Charging hourly for the schematic design is another option. Once the schematic design is done, you should have a well-defined project scope and can agree upon a fixed fee for the remainder of the work.As with most industries, hourly rates can vary significantly. Just as you can pay $200 to get your hair cut in a salon or pay $15 to have it done at Fantastic Sam’s, you can pay different hourly fees for architects based on quality and reputation. If you’re looking for the equivalent of salon-style architectural services, it’s not uncommon to pay $80 per hour for a drafter and up to $150 or more per hour to work with a firm’s principal. The cost for a project architect, associate principal or designer will fall somewhere between those extremes. (Costs may vary widely by region.) Find a pro near you

Laura Gaskill added this to How to Choose the Right Solar LightsApr 3, 2014

Pay attention to the hue. Since most solar-powered lights today use LED bulbs, the light they emit is bright white. If you want the look of incandescent bulbs, look for solar lights with tinted covers — they may be labeled “amber” or “soft white.”You get what you pay for. The brightness of a solar light depends on the brightness of the sun and the amount of daylight it is exposed to — but it also depends on the quality of the photovoltaic cells and the size of the LED bulb. Higher-quality photovoltaic cells and larger LED bulbs tend to cost more, so to a certain extent, the higher-priced solar lights do tend to shine more brightly.Shop outdoor solar lights on HouzzTell us: Do you use outdoor solar lighting?
