Hello, thanks for the question. This is not gravel but a material called pebble tech. It is commonly used next to swimming pools and it is also a water proofing product.

It looks like a layer of pea gravel to me.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to Patios to Lounge On
Gravel is a great, simple alternative to stone set in the ground. I love the way the gravel floor gives this space a modern feel - without the commitment of laying stone.
Becky Harris added this to What Makes a Patio Modern?
What could have been a wasted concrete space becomes a wonderful conversation area.
What could be a bit of a harsh landscape is softened by planted form, upholstered cushions, and a few curvy pieces.
Kit Pollard added this to What Is "American Style?"
Los Angeles With consistently lovely weather, designers in LA get to design outdoor rooms all the time (making the rest of the country jealous).
Becky Harris added this to Get Ready...It's Patio Time!
This patio is minimalist, yet offers so many options for seating, lounging, eating, etc.
Margaret Everton added this to Working Outside
Here is another outdoor space that is just as official and elegant as any indoor living room. The greenery balancing the heavier raw materials adds the perfect nature vibe.
This modern courtyard has been optimized for entertaining. Constructing permanent benches and planters and then softening them in the summertime with all-weather upholstery makes every day a garden party.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 6 Tips From Great Urban Gardens
3. Employ simplicity and repetition. Minimalist garden spaces are some of my favorites. If your space isn't conducive to growing lots of plants and flowers, go for the simplicity of monochromatic hard surfaces and sculptural furniture, as well as repeating one kind of plant multiple times for structured drama.
Erin Lang Norris added this to 5 Ways to Make the Most of Your Morning
An outdoor room. Having an outdoor area to lounge in is nice, especially when you have multiple seating options to choose from. A nearby table helps with breakfast and provides a place to work. The extra long cushions are good for power naps if you find the time.

Create a chic new floor with gravel. If the only space you have to work with has a floor made of cracked concrete or unsightly asphalt, consider covering it up with a few inches of compacted, crushed gravel.
