What is the beautiful corner specimen tree, please? - It does not look gray enough to be an olive. I'm looking for a tree that looks like an olive tree but will thrive in a zone 7.

I am wondering the same thing, I called several precast places in Miami and all have the same suggestion "pour them yourself"

I like the thyme between the pavers. Might be a better option than mondo. It can withstand full sun.

Love it: Concrete paving Available in just about every size and at many price points, pavers are a great way to create a playspace for kids and pets that always looks neat. Set them flush so kids can enjoy bikes and push toys, or leave a gap of a few inches and add plantings, as in this photo, to create a greener look. Just be sure to ask your installer about sealing. Pavers can become stained by dirt and standing water over time. Leave it: Gravel Unless you’d like to embark upon a second career as a gravel sweeper, this is one to avoid. While gravel certainly goes a long way toward forgoing a pet-stained lawn, even larger pebbles can get kicked up during playtime, dinging your doors, getting caught in the slats of your deck and getting caught in paws and shoes, which inevitably leads to damage to indoor flooring.
