standard concrete forms were used for the pours. Sand finish on the squares, honed black granite on the inlays , black pebble mosaic and exposed aggregate on the driveway. The red fountain is stucco over concrete block.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Tip: If you want to add bold color yet keep your outdoor space modern, try repetition. Stick with a limited color palette, then space out colored planters evenly. This will keep a modern order and rhythm while infusing the landscape with a dramatic hue.
