The border looks like Greystone to me. The rust color is rust because of the high iron content in the rock.

I think there's actually a few different types of rock in that mix. Looks pretty close to what you can buy in a bag at the box stores. Here's one example.

Generically, it's called "landscaping stone."

If you're in or near any big city, there will be at least one landscaping/rockyard company that will have many varieties and sizes of stone. Bring your photo and ask or just look around the yard to find what you like.

We use a lot of 1 1/2" drain rock around here for landscaping but it isn't those colors. Small area though.

For sure, but keep an open mind. When you get there, you likely will find several very nice varieties that you had not even considered.
