hip, edgy and top of my fave list! - is the tile color combo a custom mix or is this something you created? I have come back to this incredible design over and over again, never tiring of it. Everything about this is totally spot-on from the greenery to the hardscape choices. You are a genius. I don't say this lightly. I look at this stuff constantly. Anyway, I am seriously loving the color combo and am definitely wanting to mimic this for the interior of my house so if you have any thoughts, ideas, etc. would love them. WOW is all I have left to say. :)

Thanks! What a compliment. The tile on the fountain was a custom blend of tile from Heath Tile. I know they don't may the chartreuse color anymore, but here is a link to their site to see what they have for colors. We also blended sizes. I did a mock up of the layout, to be sure it was all pretty evenly spaced and we didn't end up with strips or masses. The tile guy loved me.... http://www.heathceramics.com/home/pages/tile-build

Are the step stones poured in place or are they prefabricated? - I really like the look of these large rectilinear paths, but can't tell if they are cast in-situ or if they are a prefabricated product. Some I have seen are quite large with eased edges, and because they are large, seem to be poured concrete, but the eased edges make them appear pre-fabricated. Are these pavers purchased or poured?

These were poured in place, because they matched the larger slab where the table is. It is possible to purchase these premade and have them brought in. Typically they are still custom made by a concrete fabricator.

I plant garden paths in many of my projects. It's a terrific look & really helps to soften the space. These type of plantings require very good drainage & a good soil mix. Unfortunately these type of plantings do require maintenance. They can grow over the stepping stones so they need to be trimmed back every now & then & of course weeding. It's the price you pay for this look. I've attached a sample planting.
Gravel is another solution....many to choose from however as stated in some of the above comments this too has pros & cons.

Here's an example of mixing mulch, pavers & gravel in an outdoor design. It's a different project than your space, but we thought it might give you an idea about how you can mix these materials. Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Give Your Small Garden Some Room
Looking back to move forward. This small garden brings together all we have learned from the past. The structure is very strong, linking all areas of the space. The hard landscape is softened by the restrictive plantings, and the lime green chair provides a great focal point. By looking back we can move forward in the way we design and use our smaller outdoor spaces.More:Garden Edging: Clean Lines for Your Landscape6 Great Tips from Urban Gardens
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Texas Gardener's August Garden Checklist
Mulch as necessary. To make sure your soil is evenly moist, conserve water and keep weeds at bay, apply a 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch in any bare areas of your garden. You shouldn't be able to see any bare soil, particularly when the weather is hot and dry. Use a quality native hardwood shredded mulch, and avoid heaping it on the base of your plants, which can quickly lead to rotting. Instead, feather it toward the stem without actually touching it.
