You can use such concrete pavers for your gardens. I had bought similar stones from http://www.omicrongranite.net/onyx online as they have a wide range of colors and textures as well.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Pavers for the Perfect Patio and Path
Completely clear the area you want the pavers to go in, and compact the ground as much as possible. Christina Bradley recommends starting with 95 percent compaction of the sub soil. Add a sand base of about 2 inches for drainage and movement, and compact the pavers on top of the sand. With a thinner paver, a thicker bed of concrete is usually necessary to keep the paver from cracking.
Debra Prinzing added this to Teach Your Landscape Rhythm
In the 1977 book A Pattern Language, authors Christopher Alexander, Sara Ishikawa, Murray Silverstein and others describe more than 250 "patterns" as solutions to design problems. The patterns follow design principles but are also deeply rooted in nature and human history, which is why they resonate with us. Pattern number 247, "paving with cracks between the stones" addresses the good feeling of walking from stone to stone. Here is a modern interpretation using precast square and rectangular stepping stones in a gravel garden. I love the rhythm it creates.

like this placement and color contrast - how will it look in more circular space?...I like this also. We could get the same color contrast with flag stone or we could adjust the shape of the patio area, or we could square stone and cut it to fit the curve (higher cost labor).
