It could be a pebble tile patio for the courtyard. Not sure but it beautiful!

Is it japanese boxwood in the squares?

Isler Homes
It is English Dwarf Boxwood commonly referred to as true dwarf boxwood. Japanese boxwood would be a poor choice in this type of garden because it is fast growing and can get up to 8 ft tall.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Geometry Roots Great Garden Design
Perhaps the simplest use of geometry and basic shapes in the garden is this very contemporary take on a French parterre. The overall square boundary is bordered with a line of clipped conifers echoing the central squares of evergreen "box" plants. We even have a "viewpoint" in the placement of the simple, classically designed bench.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: French Garden Style
This small courtyard epitomizes the essence of French design, especially when viewed from above. All of the basics are here: striaght-lined geometric shapes, neatly trimmed hedges and shrubs, gravel for paving and a monochromatic color scheme. Design tip: In even the most formal of gardens, it's great to include one thing that doesn't quite fit the mold. In this landscape, the bench provides a one-of-a-kind element in the otherwise repetitive (in the best gardening sense) space, keeping it from seeming too sterile.

I show you this because of the pea gravel walkway material selected. This may be too casual for you but it is very good budget-wise. Also note the stone edging then bordered by shaped shrubbery - possibly pittosporum?
