I think that was just a dust-on colored concrete with a light texture that I don't recall. I'm pretty sure the joints were tooled with a very narrow jointer, not cut.

For thinner pieces we place a bed of mortar or mortar/concrete mix to support them. For thick pieces, just a layer of 1/4 x dust base rock.

It can depend on the freeze-thaw you might have in your area. We do have more details in our architectural center at for these type of installations.

Those are Festuca 'Elijah blue' in the foreground with Blue Oat Grass beyond and Berkeley sedge beyond the gravel oval. You can look them up online and see if you have the right climate for them. Sun is important, but so is how cold your winters are and how hot your summers.

Hi, Huettl Landscape. Can you help me identify these grasses? It looks like Blue Oat grass in the foreground; can you say what the taller, greener in the middle section might be? Thank you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Ornamental Grasses in the Landscape
Here grasses lend a very different geometry, rounded mounds, as well as an unexpected silver-green color. Huettl Landscape Architecture used Festuca 'Elijah blue' in the foreground with Blue Oat Grass and Berkeley sedge beyond the gravel oval.
Debra Prinzing added this to Teach Your Landscape Rhythm
Repetition in plants of similar forms — all circles and mounds — creates a beautiful rhythm in an entry garden. Color blocking is also used as a cool design device to draw someone from the concrete patio toward the stepping-stone path. First there's a section of blue, in the form of fescue grasses, then there's a band of green-gold boxwood (right) mirrored by a gold succulent band (left). And finally, a row of taller ornamental grasses in pure green lures you farther into this garden.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Modern Garden Style
Filled with annuals, perennials and roses, this would be a traditional garden in a typical backyard. Filling the same space with symmetrical rows of grasses and shrubs creates a completely different look.Though hardscaping may play a leading role, plant choice is still a major factor in a modern or contemporary landscape. Ideally, most should have an architectural character (think phormium or blue fescue) with foliage in shades of green or gray. Though colorful flowers and plants can be used in this style of landscaping, they're most effective when treated as accent pieces.

I love the different levels of the outdoor property which create the channels that bring water to the lower levels. The space is naturally attached to nature. With all the windows on the ground level would truly be like living outdoors! Love that. Well organized and low maintenance and care.
