Hello Susan - I don't know if that's real grass or not, but we've completed similar installs. Check out our page ... and let me know if you have any questions or concerns. EasyTurf can definitely take the Texas heat :)
Cheers!
George

Pavers have no trouble in our cold northern Ohio winters.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Interview: What's Up With Prefab?
VB: Is it always less expensive to build a prefab residence? HJ: The price between a custom home and a prefab home is just about the same. There really is no dramatic difference in cost, at least in terms of how it works now. Money can be saved on design fees and time though, since construction is very tightly coordinated so the time is cut quite substantially. But in terms of price per square foot, a good prefab house will cost about the same as a custom-built home. Above: Prefabricated panels in various materials and sizes are visible in this shot of PLACE's prefabricated home design.
Erin Lang Norris added this to Your Yard: Are You Ready to Lose the Lawn?
This grid of green is unique and pleasing to the eye. It's perfect for somebody who seeks to obtain a more orderly look than ornamental grasses provide.
For Johnston, it's impossible to put a price tag on the thrill of creating something she really loves and that is also valued by the Guckenheimers. "This family sees the importance of treading lightly on the earth," she says. "They were so happy with the house concept that they didn't need to change much. In exchange, they got an easy, low-stress design process out of everything — and a home that reflects their life philosophy."Related article: What's Up With Prefab?
Jen Dalley |||||||||||||| added this to How to Build a Greener Driveway
When you have decided on a system and are ready to install it, look to redirect as much of the water as possible from your patio, roofline and downspouts to the new permeable area, so you’re capturing as much runoff water as possible.Systems like this open cell with vegetation allow water to pass through as much as 40 percent of the surface area.Most jurisdictions enforce land-use codes that limit the buildable area on a lot. Many also include a maximum amount of impervious surface area allowed on a parcel. The driveway is a great place to include more permeable area, especially if the lot is small.

The open-cell pavers shown here provide the minimum surface area a car would need to navigate the path. What’s underneath the pavers is what really counts. A solid base is key to minimizing heaving and cracking. You will need a 6-inch subbase of 1½-inch clean rock topped with a 4-inch base of ¾-inch clean rock, to make the driveway stable enough for cars to pass over it. The paver system goes on top of that. A polyurethane liner should be used near any foundation walls or concrete that needs to be protected from water flow-back.
