Are you referring to the pavers on the left side of the photo or the stone patio to the right? On the left, it looks like concrete pavers with pea gravel surrounding it. On the right, a sedimentary flagstone I would say.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lauren Bonar Swezey added this to Plant a Pocket Garden
Symmetrical plantings of multi-trunk olive trees and Mexican feather grass add drama to a contemporary entry.
Originally, the part you see that contains the pea gravel was supposed to be all gravel, but during construction the clients worried about guests in really nice high-heeled shoes navigating the gravel. Thus, the rhythmic lines of tinted concrete slabs were added. It seems the being considerate of Jimmy Choos paid off. Thueme says "everyone was pleased with the addition to the composition."
Frank Organ added this to Geometry Roots Great Garden Design
This very modern courtyard garden has its roots in the past with its formally planted low beds — this time using grasses — in a symmetrical design.

concrete slab in gravel for meditation, yoga or just a sitting area at the upper level. I also like the olive trees- if you want to get rid of the bamboo we can plant trees for privacy that can be topped so they don't block your neighbor's view
