This is asphalt. If properly constructed it should last 20 years.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Your Yard: Are You Ready to Lose the Lawn?
When it comes to edging around trees and shrubs, bricks not only keep small rocks away, but they also highlight whatever is growing within the border. This may be a good option if you have any ornamental trees that you'd like to draw interest to.
Donald Pell - Gardens added this to Wild Gardens Bring Excitement and Beauty to Landscapes
This governor’s court is designed with really nice materials. What I really love about this space is the grove of trees set in masses of perennials that leads guests off into the garden. The tighter and more off-center the trees, the better. I take great pleasure in sourcing gnarly trees for these type of installations. Cultural expectations are powerful, and some folks will never be comfortable in these wild gardens, no matter how stylized. I grew up playing in fields and creeks, and I am sure this informs what I think is beautiful. We are seeing more designers embrace the wild garden, but there is still a dearth of actual models for this type of work. Yes, I want you to read my ideabooks, but they’re only the start to learn about this work. If you are really interested in outdoor spaces like these, seek them out and visit them — or, as I always recommend, take a hike in some wild place off the beaten path, and don’t forget your camera.More: Take Your Garden on a Rural Route With Plant-Dominant Designs
