    The tree is a Japanese Black Pine or Pinus thunbergii. This tree is over 40 years old and would normally be over 30 ft. tall, but it has been bonsai trained and pruned to attain and retain the current appearance.

    These stepping stones are laid on a compacted baserock bedding, set snuggly so that they will not shift, then filled in around with gravel. However, this path is intended for minimal use and is symbolic in nature. If you plan to constuct a highly traveled pathway, I would recommend a concrete base with the stones mortared on top to lessen the possibility of future settlement and a tripping hazard!

Please tell me what type of boarder or divider seperates the mulch and stone?

    The divider is Trex, the brand name for a composite material using recycled plastic and sawdust. Trex is primarily a decking product, but we have found it subject to less shrinkage, warping and discoloration than other composite headerboard products.

Could you please tell me what type of rocks are these? Thanks

    The large boulders are called "Sonoma Fieldstone", readily available in Northern California. They were hand selected and placed to complement one another as well as overall composition within the garden.
    The small rocks or gravel is called "Pami Pebble" composed of small 3/4-1/2" diameter rounded gravel of various colors.

Any idea what finish was put on the fence?

    The finish on the wood fence is a simple, semi-solid stain in a very dark brown color.

    Thanks. Exactly what I am trying to do.
