What floor hardscape application is this? goes so well with the veneer.

The banding is a rustic stone from 'Cougar Stone' called 'Dakota' and the main hardscape is integral colored Concrete with seeded aggregate (bird's eye, hand tossed) mix.
The aggregate embedded into the colored concrete provides a more rustic look and feel overall. This helps blend the hardscape with the stone veneer on the home and the veneer added to the new features (all to match).

Inside design note:
This photo always troubles me... The tree there is a Japanese Maple, and it looks so lonely...! That area was supposed to be a bit different in that the tree was supposed to much larger, there should be a large Bougainvillea vine trailing across the wall (behind the Japanese Maple) and some larger, more upright plantings at the base of the wall (also behind the Maple Tree) to provide a hopefully more lush feel and also providing a feeling of separation from the fountain feature & the residence wall.

Hope the info helps somewhat.
