It is possible it was paved with pebble tile. Not sure as the floor is a little burry so it could be loose tile. It would be really easy to get this look with pebble tile though. I would use our 'polished tiger' to get this look: http://www.pebbletileshop.com/products/Polished-Tiger-Pebble-Tile.html

I would also like to know if it leaches any of the colour into the water. Thanks!

I would like to know about coating the inside. I've called around for a clear sealer, but no one has anything suitable for water immersion.

It is called Lueders limestone. It is a quarried in Texas and that is one of the reasons we used it...keeping it local. You can google lueders and find various suppliers. I cannot remember where we purchase this batch.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Give Your Small Garden Some Room
Creating the bones of the garden. The designers of yesteryear used paving, walls, pergolas and rills to create these bones. Today we are more likely to use decking, gravel and raised beds. In this yard the strong blocks of gravel and the formal water feature hold the design together.
A courtyard garden is another classic Japanese garden. This one has the standard design elements — gravel, water, accent tree — but with a contemporary twist. Rather than a natural-looking pond and a soft-edge gravel patio, usually the hallmarks of a Japanese garden, straight edges border the tiered water feature and patio.The accent tree is thin but tall, rather than kept low. Even the furniture has a modern look, with the extended benches and not-quite-nature-inspired green. But the end result is just as peaceful as a traditional Japanese garden.
When there isn’t a lot of outdoor space to work with, but the desire for living space is a high priority, utility has to come first. Consider the activities you desire and the furnishings needed to support those activities. Be sure to include enough space surrounding the area for unimpeded circulation. As the young tree here grows, it will form a light canopy over the room, changing the proportions of mass and space, as will the leafy shrubs in the corner. If this arrangement of plants and open space feels too sparse for your liking, you could trade the gently cascading water feature for additional planting beds. In terms of how the space is arranged, all the forms are parallel and perpendicular to the building, creating a somewhat formal feeling. Consider how the distribution of space and stuff might look on a pie chart. I’d call this about 80 percent space and 20 percent stuff, at least until the tree puts on more growth.
