Space to unwind

Using large pavers and a sleek stone fireplace turns a small lawn between house and garage into a “decompression chamber” perfect for relaxing after work.


Striking steps

Terraced stone steps in a mix-and-match pattern creates a strong focal point, while “character” plants create visual interest on both sides of the path.


Budget-friendly curb appeal

A variety of heat-tolerant plants with low water requirements provide year-round interest. Pavers take up most of the space where thirsty grass might grow instead, creating a striking pattern while also helping save resources and money in the long run.


Gravel entry

Gravel’s earthy texture, its give underfoot, and its crunchy sound are the reasons why this oldest of hardscapes will always be perceived as the softest of paving materials. This gravel entry is a clean casual foil for plant textures and colors.


Transform a driveway

Transform an unused back half of a driveway into a curving path of concrete pavers, making room for a lush garden bed to the side.

Concrete pavers line a driveway

Durable concrete pavers set in a regular pattern are a good match for the architectural style of the house, and their subtly varied colors help mediate the starkness of a black-and-white color scheme.


Anchoring a living wall

The stone walkway and gravel path create a smooth counterpoint to the wild living wall featuring ferns, bromelaids, coral bells, spider plants, and elephant ears.


Bold shapes

In this Malibu garden, grass circles appear to float on a river of black pebbles that winds through a grove of bamboo.


Chic cut-stone walkway

Large cut-stone squares create a smooth and polished look.


Creating textures

Fractured shale fills gaps between concrete pavers in this yard; yarrow and grasses soften the path’s edges.
