    These are sawn cedar shingles. There are a couple different treatments. Some are stained with bleaching oil and some with a semi transparent red acrylic stain. Hope this helps.

    Hi there. If I remember correctly, the black pots came from AW Pottery in Lynnwood Washington. is the web site and has contact information. They have a huge selection, but the selections change over the years and these were purchased several years ago. I hope this helps.

4. Changes in path materials. Consideration should be given to the size and materials of garden paths, as this can greatly enhance the experience in your garden. Larger, more defined paths allow for quicker movement and provide the opportunity to look up from the path to the surrounding environment. This works well to direct focus to features in the distance.Smaller, more irregular paths (such as those made of flagstone or uneven brickwork) require visitors to slow their pace and direct their eyes downward. This is a great way to draw attention to the small details in the immediate surrounding area. Changing the material and/or scale of a path is also an effective way to signal the transition into a new garden room.
