I love the cutouts in the patio, they really prevent the space from feeling like a dancefloor and create such depth.

Looks like pea gravel or diamond dust...fine gravel from slate used to keep weeds at bay.

last Thursday
Front yard - Concept #2 Pavers in path leading to front entry set in 1/4" washed granite gravel. Fine grain. Can choose different colors. Charcoal color would match nicely with dark trim and contrast well with gray pavers.
