please help me to identify this plant

Hi Vikas 

It looks to me like the Mexican Hat Plant - Kalanchoe daigraemontiana   

It may grow lots of tiny plantlets on the edges of its leaves - these can be taken off and grown separately.

Water fountain flow adjustment

I would contact the vendor or their solicitors and ask for the operating and maintenance instructions for the fountain. If they don't have them available they should, at the very least, give you contact details for the manufacturer.

Are you looking for something formal, or something softer - perhaps a mix of shrubs and perennials?

How much of the gravelled area are you planning to do away with - I was thinking of a half-moon shaped bed, to give you a semi-circular driveway.
