Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Dare to Mix Things Up in the Landscape
This thoughtful space is a perfect place to start — so perfect, in fact, that it could be labeled Juxtaposition 101. Many elements are at work here, but notice how the result has an aura of simplicity that makes it feel like an oasis in the midst of an obviously urban environment. The river rocks and the moss share a similar size and shape but are totally disparate in color and texture. This similarity and disparity work together to capture the eye by creating a high degree of interest. Additionally, the river rocks relate to the boulder through the commonalities of color and texture but contrast in size and shape. Finally, both types of rock relate to the concrete pavers with regard to color and texture but exhibit disparity in size and shape. Take a moment to assess your emotional reaction to this vignette as well as the reasons for your reaction.

Nice combo of materials. If we can't have a break between every paver or concrete pour, maybe the breaks are more unpredicatable and filled nicely with moss. Is moss okay instead of gravel?
