What type of plant did you use in the green space between the pavers on the driveway? - The plants seem to be holding up very well and I understand getting plants to continue to grow in between pavers like this can be difficult because the soil is so packed!

I noticed that comment on the plantings between the pavers along the drive. I love a split path drive and I've been considering replacing my cracked up concrete driveway with something more like this. Can you give info as how the installation was done or the material used. I'm considering options of this manner for future updates. Also noticed the sidwalk is divided in to 2-3'concrete square pads? love the stone around the entry! Lovely architecture/interiors appreciate all suggestions.

Do you really think this stone could hold up to the weight of a car? Any concern with cracking?

Pavers are extremely unlikely to break since the are individual pieces which can flex under weight from above or hydropressure or tree roots from below...
...unlike a solid slab of concrete which cannot flex and will eventually crack.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rachel Grace added this to Renovation Detail: The Ribbon Driveway
Rather than the traditional concrete and grass ribbon, this California drive features pavers, slate and greenery in a grid pattern.
6. Fashion your driveway. Get the hottest look straight out of a magazine with this fashionable driveway of grass and concrete pavers. Your haute driveway will have people talking.
Laura Gaskill added this to 10 Ways to Boost Your Home's Resale Value
5. Upgrade exterior doors. Curb appeal will help sell your house; it's as simple as that. And the way your home looks from the outside depends a lot on the condition of your front door (and the garage door, if it's visible from the street).
A wash of light across the entire entry creates a feeling of welcoming here. The look is achieved with a mix of downlights and a traditional porch light that ensures the house number is visible. The result is a warm and inviting glow.
5. Save your best parking spot. If parking in your neighborhood is limited, be sure to reserve your off-street spot for your guests, if they are driving. Go out ahead of time and track down an elusive street spot if you need to — just don't make your guests spend their first hour at your place looking for a spot.
