What Houzz contributors are saying:

Striving for Paving PerfectionPaving in minimalist gardens needs to be simple and straightforward, yet highly engineered. The materials used need to be immaculate in finish — limestone or pale sandstone are favorites used by designers, though polished concrete also fits the bill.Though any minimalist garden should be as maintenance free as possible, any hardscaping must be kept pristine to acheive the look. Maintenance tip: Pressure washing should help keep more absorbent stone, such as limestone and sandstone, free from algae and dirt stains.
The beauty of this garden is without doubt the flat planes of neutral color and mixed textures, combined with the attention to detail.Some of Mondrian’s early work used much more muted colors than the bright primary colors of his later work that we are familiar with. The neutral colors here create a wonderful monotone rendering of planes and lines.
Frank Organ added this to The Right Stone for Your Garden Design
Mixed paving. The wide range of sizes and colors allows us to mix and match types within a design, providing great contrast between the differing surfaces. The mixture of stones here not only includes rectangles of gravel and pebbles between the pavers but also pebbles set within concrete, but with their surface exposed. This is achieved by allowing the concrete and pebble mixture to almost set and then washing off the top surface to expose the top layer of pebbles.
If you’re worried about weeds growing through wide sweeps of gravel — even if you’ve used a weed barrier — divide larger areas of paving with smaller, more controllable, strips of gravel or stones and blocks of ground cover plants.

More hardscape in a garden generally means easier upkeep. We are talking about things like paths, walls, steps and decks. The initial cost can be a deterrent when deciding to include large areas of hardscape, but the long-term maintenance benefits and replacement costs balance this expense.

I have been involved all my working life with design, garden design, horticulture and garden retailing. At present I work as a buyer for a large garden centre in the south west of England where I live in the idyllic Devon countryside.

Stone has always been a cost-effective hardscape material for all garden styles. In gravel form it has been used in landscapes from the raked Zen gardens of Japan to the driveways of English landscape gardens, and it is still used as an affordable and easy-to-install surface in contemporary gardens. Its larger relations, the pebbles, cobbles and paddle stones, have become a much more interesting and useful material in our gardens, as they have so many applications. Jeffrey Gordon Smith Landscape ArchitectureSave to IdeabookEmail Photo The naming of these rounded rocks depends on their sizing. Pebbles are generally thought of as being the smallest, with a diameter of less than 2½ inches (almost 6½ centimeters); boulders as the largest, at more than 10 inches (64 centimeters) across; and cobbles as in the middle, being 2½ inches to 10 inches (6 to 64 centimeters) in diameter. Paddle stones are the size of cobbles but have a more flattened shape. The rounded shape of these useful garden stones results from their particles’ being constantly worn down by the action of the sea or the water in rivers or lakes. Here’s how to use the stones in the landscape. Huettl Landscape ArchitectureSave to IdeabookEmail Photo Ground cover. Low-maintenance gardens have become a priority for many of us, and garden designers are looking for interesting materials to replace lawns and borders that can fit the bill: low cost, easily installed and maintenance free. Pebbles and cobbles can be used as a low-maintenance ground cover in both traditional and contemporary gardens. The stones in this garden add texture to the design and contrast against the smooth concrete paving, while also providing a permeable mulch for the planting. Folia Horticultural + DesignSave to IdeabookEmail Photo In this garden river stones of all the same size create a clean ground cover, especially where there is little need for pedestrian access. Cultivart Landscape DesignSave to IdeabookEmail Photo Dry creek beds. The stylized dry riverbed flowing under this deck walkway includes rounded stones of various sizes — from pebbles to boulders. Plants among the stones not only help create the natural feel required but also help soften the expanse of stones. See how to create a realistic dry creek bed Garden Culture VictoriaSave to IdeabookEmail Photo Here we see how a sweeping run of mixed pebbles and cobbles creates a very realistic copy of a dry creek bed in an informal contemporary garden.
