These pavers are Connecticut Bluestone, not concrete. We had them cut to the specific dimensions shown.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lauren Bonar Swezey added this to Permeable Paving Soaks Up Rain
Rectangular granite stepping stones and gray gravel create an informal entry and a permeable path.
John Hill added this to Inspired Designs for Sloped Lots
This last photo serves to remind people of the importance of landscape design in how we perceive and move through changes in level. Many of the previous examples feature minimal plantings or just lawn areas, reinforcing the clean modern edges of the steps and terraces. Yet here the trees and bushes intrude upon the stepped walkway, which is appropriately treated with the stone in a natural way. Everybody has their own preference, but having the planting, hardscape, and even the architecture work together is very important. More: Level Changes Define Interior Spaces
