What about tree roots that close to the foundation?

These are small, well-mannered trees. If one was worried about roots, trees can be planted with a root barrier between them and the structure. Another trick with trees is to make sure to deep water them to prevent surface rooting when possible.

Those look to be flowering pears (Pyrus calleryana) or possibly the evergreen pear (P. kawakamii)

The plants in between the pavers look like Baby Tears. It grows in the shade but not full sun.

Oh my - I agree. No Bradford pear for this application, Please look at growth pattern. Way too close to the house.

I wonder if these are Chanticleer Pear and not Bradford. Chanticleer have a upright narrow pyramidal form which works ok for narrow spaces. When i was planting Aristocrat Pears for my pavement strip, the nursery guy told me about these trees. And then started noticing them on a number of our city boulevards.

Is the green plant between the stone thyme?

It definitely has the look of a variety called creeping thyme. Its scent and durability makes it a very popular choice for planting between pavers!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to 8 Splendid Side Yard Designs
Straight, narrow and wedged between a retaining wall and the home, this side yard could easily feel claustrophobic. Instead, it gives the sensation of walking through a quiet, wooded bosk. When you plant trees in side yards, choose dwarf, columnar or slow-growing varieties that will be happy with the confined growing conditions. In this walkway, a fluffy ground cover knits together the flagstones, and the overall effect suggests a beautifully patterned carpet.

This is a very good idea; however, when the trees grow, there is a chance that the tops will blot out the sun to the garden in the back.
