Gorgeous mix of color - Sorry to bother you, just wanted to know what plants were used; the red ones are especially bright and cheery!

No bother at all. That's why I post things on this site. The darker red flowers at the back of the garden are Jupiter's Beard. They also come in white. The bright red flowers you love so much are a red Penstemon. A wildflower from New Mexico and Arizona.

Glad you like how they look. I couldn't remember what the material was but it's really the best weight; holds up to wind yet easy to move. Great product and design always make my job easier!

Gravel enhances seating. - Thanks for the great story. Gravel really does provide beautiful contrast and usefulness. This seating is wonderful too. Can't imagine shipping costs! Would you mind sharing your source? Thank you.

They aren't completely solid so not too heavy but they are very comfortable. See

What Houzz contributors are saying:

J. Peterson Garden Design added this to 5 Gravel and Stone Types for a Rockin' Landscape
Crushed Granite Gravel The basics: This one is closely related to decomposed granite, but it's a bit chunkier in texture and size. While DG has quite a bit of silt and almost sand-like particles, crushed granite gravel has larger particles. The texture is not smooth like pea gravel, but this choice is perfect for walkways and patios, as well as for setting off xeric plants. Cost: Crushed granite gravel is sold by the yard for $60 and up, depending upon your location and the size. Those living in more rural areas may pay more for this material, as it's more expensive to truck in than more readily available materials like DG.Advantages: It provides great texture in the garden, and is a step up from DG for gardeners who want a more refined or contemporary look.Disadvantages: It can be hard to locate a source if you live in a more rural area, and it can be twice the cost of the similar but more humble decomposed granite.Special considerations: It's similar to decomposed granite.Maintenance: The upkeep for crushed granite gravel is similar to that for decomposed granite and pea gravel, as it has some of the same qualities as each of those materials.
