love this!! how do you irrigate the ground cover in between the stones? - we want to create a similar patio but want to be able to put outdoor furniture on it and a gas fire pit. how would you irrigate this without getting the furniture/fire pit wet? we live in a pretty hot summer climate. thanks!

actually the stones are set on yellow sand here, but I often set them on individual concrete dollops, which I recommend. The concrete is scraped out of the cracks between the stones, and soil added. It would end up being about 4" of fill soil and native soil beneath.

The easiest way to irrigate this Elfin Thyme groundcover is with pop up, overhead spray, set to come on early in the a.m. so that the patio dries before anyone gets up. You would have to cover your furniture and firepit to take this irrigation route.
