Thank you for your reply. I plan to choose a flagstone for an entry, patio, and chimney veneer in southern California.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to 6 Suggestions for Harmonious Hardscaping
Integrate plants directly into the hardscape. Here the designer has both embraced and softened the hardscape by introducing a ground cover directly into the joints of the sidewalk. Notice how the appropriate use of this unexpected technique pulls the eye toward the house and creates an oasis in the midst of the walkway. Creeping and wooly thyme (Thymus cvs, zones 4 to 9) are especially suited for this purpose.More plants for your pathways
