Judging from the plants growing between the pavers, as well as this designer's natural style, I would say these are natural stone pavers. :)

These are Arizona Flagstone cut to shape pavers and the plant material is Dymondia.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

decordemon added this to 8 Great Ways to Use Landscape Pavers
Fragmented stone slabs laid out in a circular pattern create a courtyard effect even if you don't actually have a courtyard. In addition to this, it's an excellent way to highlight a feature such as a waterfall, obelisk or statuary. Or if you're an overachiever, an obelisk with a statuary carved into it with water cascading from the top.
ds design studio added this to Get the Look: Spanish-Mediterranean Courtyard
As you come through the front gate at this home, you are greeted by a tall column-shaped fountain in a front flagstone courtyard. It appears to be centered with the arched window and is balanced with Italian cypress.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Plants for Your Pathway
This landscape designer used Dymondia margaretae, a durable South-African ground cover that does best in USDA Hardiness zones 9-11. "As ground cover, the main thing is to make sure you're not planting something that's going to end up growing super high, so it doesn't cover the pavers," says Drew Sivgall, founder of Southern-California based AMS Landscape Design Studios. "Make sure whatever you use won't grow above four inches, or it's easy to mow down or trim." Next: 6 options to consider
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Mediterranean Garden Style
A Spanish-style bungalow gets a fitting front yard. No lawn — instead, a tall water feature is set among adobe-color pavers edged with dymondia, a low-growing ground cover. Grasses and soft-color shrubs edge the space, allowing house color to be the single bold accent. The water column is more contemporary than traditional, but it's a good balance to the cypress on either side of the window and provides a sense of privacy in this front yard (a sense that is reinforced by the low wall that surrounds the entire space).
