What Houzz contributors are saying:

decordemon added this to 8 Great Ways to Use Landscape Pavers
Brunches and lunches in the garden can soar to new heights by defining the space with randomly placed pavers. It breaks up the otherwise green ground and adds a bit more solid surface for chair and table legs. Keeping grass between each paver is key; it creates an "always been there" look.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Texas Gardener: What to Do in July
Plan your autumn garden: It's not too early to get a head start on your fall garden. Plot it out on graph paper, create plant lists, remove perennial weeds before tilling the new bed, and add compost or fertilizer to enrich your soil. Step outside the expected and mix up your edible plants like herbs and vegetables, along with your ornamental plants and flowers.
Donald Pell - Gardens added this to Why the Art of Restraint Is So Good for Your Garden
Create an experience in every outdoor space. Pool decks and patios without a garden just don't feel good to me — no matter what material is used. Plant these spaces to create an experience of place. Consider your site first, ask what the site wants and find plants that will work best for your garden. This photo shows a fairly simple palette of robust plants: Red-Hot Poker (Kniphofia sp), yarrow (Achellea sp), and geranium all have great cultivars to select from. The thyme between the pavers makes the space elegant, when it could have looked stark.
