A study in contrasts, both in shape and color: terracotta-colored square brick pavers of a patio are edged or filled-in with black-rock gravel. The result: even though both are on the same level, you know where one ends and the other begins, or vice versa.

It's a striking, geometric, modern look - and not all types of plants would look good in this planting bed. The cacti and succulents work well here; a cottage garden would not.
