What size are those pavers, and what is the spacing between them? - Looking to redo our front walkway into something more modern. It's currently 31' long, 4' wide. Trying to figure out the correct size for custom pavers, and the spacing between them. Thinking 2.5' x 4' pavers, with 3-4" in between. Suggestions? Thank you!

The pavers you reference, are they pre-cast and you need to set them or are you pouring them (concrete) in place?
Something I learned when I redid our front walk in 16x16 precast pavers were they were SO difficult to set, and lift and move, and reset.... I did it myself mind you but there were really hard to install well despite I had a properly prepared base of packed screening with loose screening on top. I think having the 3-4 " spacing is a GREAT idea because it gives you a buffer to work with but just a note that big pavers like you mention might be hard to lay.

Plants that border path in front of house are perennials Astilbe “ Bridal Veil” (white flowers) and at the base of the
Astilbe are Alchemilla Mollis or Lady,s Mantle (yellowish green flowers). Lady,s Mantel are used primarily for the foliage,
not the flowers. Large green leaves show water in big droplets when wet. Good plant to use at the base of Siberian Iris for the contrast of horizontal and vertical foliage textures.

Thank you - its beautiful and so well done! The light in this picture makes the bridal veil look yellow to me. Is there an evergreen bush behind the bridal veil?

The plant is new guinea impatiens. They are a great annual bedding plant for sun/part sun conditions and they come in a variety of colours....light pink,dark pink, salmon, white, coral colours. Google the name to get more pics and close ups of the foliage. I hope this helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Pavers for the Perfect Patio and Path
"If the pavers are spaced too far apart, the walking becomes self-conscious and stretched," says Joseph Huettl. "If they're too close together, plants or lawn won't grow properly." Huettl recommends using 1.5-inch to 3-inch gaps for gravel, 2- to 4-inch gaps for fine ground covers, and 3- to 6-inch gaps for lawn to grow.
Debra Prinzing added this to How to Tap the Potential of a Big Side Yard
This side yard has perfect proportions, beginning with its width, which is equal to the height of the architecture (this is an often-used design technique — imagine flipping down your house on its side into the yard — to calculate the dimensions of a garden space).Longer than it is wide, the side garden is nicely divided into thirds, and each slender band plays a part to create its drama and energy.To the left, against the home: A colorful bed with permanent plantings closer to the structure and seasonal plantings at the edge.At center: A graphic walkway comprising 30-inch-square pavers. I love the rhythmic vibe of this treatment. The strong lines have a magnetic quality that holds the entire side garden together and leads the eye to the seating area/patio as its destination.To the right, furthest from the home: An allee of trees. They will soon mature to visually offset the weight of the architecture — and give this side garden a sense of enclosure. Brilliant!
Used en masse, magenta plantings can shine. Try using a mass of magenta plants in combination with gray fieldstone or siding to liven up the duller tones.
