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.
