Columnar evergreens provide a rhythmic structure to the flowing bluestone entry walk that terminates in a fountain courtyard. A soothing palette of green and white plantings keeps the space feeling lush and cool. Photo credit: Verdance Fine Garden Design

    Thank you for your inquiry, Prema. This walkway uses "full range Connecticut bluestone, random shape" and "McNear Red Common brick." These materials are widely available, so if you search the internet for "landscape supply," "landscape materials," "building materials" or the like, you should be able to find a supplier in your area. For instance, here in the Palo Alto I would check with Lyngo Garden Supply,, and Peninsula Building Materials, I hope this is helpful… good luck!

    Best regards,

    In addition to the white tulips, those are white Impatiens. This is an annual that will do fine in shade, just don't expect them to last beyond the cool season. Thanks for asking!

Amanda Pollard added this to 10 Simple Ideas for Edging Your Garden Borders17 May 2018

Lay bricks flush to the path…A neat way to create an edge for your flowerbeds is with bricks. For a streamlined look, lay them flush with the ground. This is particularly effective when the border is next to a lawn, as the mower blades can easily move over it. The bricks here separate the borders from the path and allow the flowers to overlap without blocking the walkway. Bricks can be an inexpensive garden edging idea. There are online tutorials that show you how to lay a row of bricks between your borders and lawn, but for a really neat, solid finish, it’s best to get some help from an expert.

Use it as a backdropThe plain, fine-textured green of a hedge provides the perfect backdrop and contrast for your flowering plants, just like the canvas for a picture. It also provides shelter from cold winds and, because it filters the wind rather than blocks it, there are less likely to be wind tunnels or eddies in your garden.
