Are these rocks or some type of floor covering around the squares? - I like the look of these, but if these are all small rocks, that's not what I'm looking for.

What did you do to keep weeds/plants from growing through the gravel? - I'm thinking a sheet of weedbarrier may work, but how deep did you have to dig for the small shrubs to have enough root growth?

6. Create different levels. Terracing a space can result in both logical and dramatic transitions. The added third dimension allows for more diversity in themes and activities within a confined space. You will notice a surprising number of substrates in this yard, from the gray concrete pads to the tan gravel to the turf. What keeps all of this from being overpowering? The answer lies in the varying heights, masterfully woven together with bands of Cor-Ten steel that mimic the color of the house siding.
