As one enters the Hacienda Garden, you pass under a ramada where the floor is a compilation of mosaic Saltillo tiles, Polished and planed oil shale from Mexico and is edged with thinly cut Saltillos. The octagonal spaces are a feature of the entire garden as most of the geometry is oriented toward the four cardinal points of the compass and semi oriented toward the Solstices. The mosses and the Dichondra in the the pathway through and under the ramada are irrigated by using a subterranean irrigation tubing called \'Leaky Pipe\' which is made from recycled automobile tires. In the background the fountain, which is the centerpiece of this garden can be seen.
