Thyme - often used to fill space between hardscapes - smells nice too.

Wondering how you keep the thyme so tidy. How much maintenance is involved?

How would you water the thyme? I want this look for my drive way - how thick would the concrete need to be to hold my mini cooper?

Alternatively, you can space your pavers a few inches apart and plant groundcover between the edges. If you are looking for a hardy groundcover, thyme may be a good option, depending on your climate zone and amount of sun or shade.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Plants for Your Pathway
3. Elfin thyme (Thymus serpyllum 'Elfin'), USDA zones 4-8. Elfin thyme is much like creeping thyme, but in miniature. It's just as aromatic as its larger counterpart, and blooms with purple flowers in summer. Elfin thyme is a very slow-growing ground cover, and usually won't get more than 1-2 inches high. It's fairly drought tolerant, but should be watered when the top three inches of soil is dry. It grows in small, hilly bunches in the shade, but tends to have a more flat and horizontal appearance when grown in the sun.
Pattern. Shapes, forms and patterns communicate abundance here, giving visual cues about the vocabulary of this garden. There's an obvious grid-style pattern formed by the concrete pavers, comprising a simple geometric installation that gives this garden its intentional structure. The foliage and flower colors reinforce the modern, graphic message of this garden's design.Abundance is an attitude of living in the garden, of cherishing plants, of combining art and horticulture, and of expressing one's highly personal style.
