looking for design tuscan theme small front garden walls will be rendered...brown pavers...orange/red roof tiles...colors please any ideas desperate.
When you render the bricks I would consider leaving some of them exposed here and there - that reminds me of old Tuscan buildings! I would include some large terracotta pots with olive trees or lemon trees, also as others have suggested some brightly coloured geraniums in hanging baskets against the wall or in terra cotta pots. Here are a couple of shots of my back deck (which isn't looking its absolute best) but to give you an idea of the large pots and colour. You have a beautiful spot to work with good luck! Sue
Terracotta & earthy or bright coloured pots with small trees like citrus & olive
Also lavender & herbs
then some hanging pots of colourful flowers like geraniums
Do you like bright colours?

Hi Raina, you sound as if you want traditional, so I have attached, pictures of 3 courtyards, I particularly like. They are classy and inviting, I feel. I would also include a wrought iron element in some way, even if just a panel on the wall. A classic pizza oven would also finish the look. Good luck, would love to see pictures of
oooohhh my gosh...thank you for the amazing shots...cant wait to get going with these fabulous ideas...thank you
Echo the comments about lavender and geraniums - both of which have the added bonus of being very difficult to kill!
You can't have Tuscan without a pot of rosemary - and it has the advantage of being edible!
