The former Smith & Hawken store. I remember vividly as this was the last collection my factory developed with S&H before they went bankrupt.

We just purchased river rock to be placed between our pavers. The width between the pavers in this photo appears to large to fill with pea gravel. The outcome is much nicer with the river rock and you can purchase it in a variety of sizes. Sometimes it is called Mexican river rock. Our pavers are spaced about 4 inches apart and we used medium size rocks. (about 2 inches in size)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lauren Bonar Swezey added this to Permeable Paving Soaks Up Rain
With plenty of room for furniture, this patio made of stone strips provides the same benefits as a solid design, but water can drain through to the soil below.
Cassy Aoyagi, FormLA Landscaping added this to Patio Pavers Rock Out
The mix of materials also affords ample opportunity to play with either analogous or contrasting colors.
Debra Prinzing added this to Privacy Screening Made Pretty
Planting a green hedge often is the easiest way to screen a neighboring property from view. The lines of this tidy hedge echo those of the patio, making it feel more like a freestanding architectural screen rather than an ominous wall. As a bonus, the hedge becomes a lovely backdrop to the perennials and ground covers planted at its base.
