5 inch gap between a sidewalk & concrete blocks

I have a 5 inch gap between my sidewalk & concrete blocks. I want to use something decorative but not sure what will work best. When my new sidewalk was poured they didn't pour up to the stones & now I have a 4 inch gap that has weeds & catches all the leaves. The brick on my house is red, is there some kind of stones that could be used with cement to fill in the gap? Or some other suggestion you may have?

Is this sidewalk, 5" gap, then concrete blocks of house?
You could place any stone in the gap, like river rock, or colored stones. Go to a local rock place to see what is available. A bit of a pain raking leaves off of them though.
RoundUp kills any green thing that might sprout in the space.
