Hi Nick, as mentioned in my email just sent, the pebble is a Lilydale Toppings, available from most landscape / building supplies stores.

Thanks for your question.

The grey material is a corrugated steel product called Custom Orb, which is manufactured by Lysaght and quite a common material in Australia. It's finished with a baked paint layer called Colorbond in the Woodlands Grey colour.

What type of roofing material was used?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The landscaping, designed in collaboration with Rush Wright Landscape Architects, is a free-flowing array of mostly native plants, including various species of eucalyptus and acacia.
Jen Dalley |||||||||||||| added this to How to Build a Greener Driveway
Gravel is another surface to consider. It will also need a base underlayment to maximize its pervious nature. Usually this is a plastic mat made up of circular or honeycomb cells structured to provide load-bearing support. These cells are filled with gravel and help keep rainwater in the soil and out of sewers.If you are in a climate that has a lot of snow, and your driveway commonly needs plowing in the winter, gravel can require more maintenance.
Soften the edges. A contemporary country property embraces sharp lines and solid materials, but it’s the soft landscaping that adds warmth and colour to the exterior. Although the native plants require minimal watering, a drip-irrigation system was added to battle summer heatwaves. Earthy-toned pots on one side of the gravel driveway add a touch of elegance to this open space.
