What is the color of this gorgeous stone? - Can you PLEASE tell me the color of this stone? I LOVE it!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

10. Increase front-yard living space with a low stone wall. Direct traffic to the door with a clear path, and use the stone walls to indicate the areas of the yard you want to keep more private. This is a backyard, but you can adapt the same approach out front. Tell us: Which rock wall was your favorite? Join the discussion!
