Is the formation of the gravel rock permanent and if so with what ? - I love it--so unique

The gravel formation is created by raking the gravel material. Also the formation of the lines in it are created by the rake and thus are not permanent. Hope this helps...thank you for the comments. ---AguaFina

What Houzz contributors are saying:

For the real source of minimalism, we should look to the Zen gardens of Japan. The perfectly placed rocks set in immaculate gravel, raked into swirling patterns, are pure minimalism.Japanese gardens were created in the pursuit of spirital balance, but in the West this has become a garden style.
Do a simple cleanup. Enjoy autumn's pleasures and do something simple that makes a huge difference: Leave the difficult work for another month. October is a great time to just touch up your outdoor spaces to keep them livable, allowing more time to enjoy them.Remove smaller deadwood from trees and shrubs, since removal of live growth is more likely to stimulate new growth when the first colder weather arrives. Dead twigs and smaller wood pieces detract from a plant's form — and it's easy to tell those from the live wood right now. When you're finished, rake up excess debris, leaves and other litter from planting areas and the lawn. An ordered space is more relaxing, and a garden may be the prime spot for personal revival.
7. Don't take statements made under stress literally. When your other half says, "Just do whatever you want," it is very rarely exactly what he or she means. Take into consideration when this statement was made — at the beginning of the project, or after constant and frustrating discussions? What your mate really means, quite likely, is that he or she doesn't have the strength to negotiate with you over things it's clear you'll have a hard time budging on. So, take that as a sign that you need to be much more flexible. Check in with your partner about decisions and to ask for his or her opinion. If you're met with grumbles, just hold your head high and proceed, all the while continuing to give your partner information as you go. Don't take the whole project under your wing and finish it without communicating with your other half. It could really spell disaster otherwise, and an excuse like, "You told me to do whatever I want, so I went with the all-black kitchen even though you hate black" won't ever save the day.8. Always present a united front. Never criticize your partner in front of the architect, designer or contractor, let alone the Sheetrock installer. Wondering why you have lips and teeth? It's so you have two gates to keep your tongue under wraps.Additionally, you'll get the best work out of your team if everyone feels confident in you, rather than worrying that the marriage might break up before the construction is complete, leaving them stuck. If you're going to have disagreements, do it privately. Why should the guy installing your wood floor have a better idea about what is going on in your relationship than your closest friends?
