Hi, We use Bolero from Delta Bluegrass Company. It is a dwarf fescue that is heat and drought tolerant. Thanks for the question and hope this helps!

Can a push mover be used to cut the grass inbetween the pavers? - 16x16 pavers spaced approximately 2 inches apart

Yes, but it depends on what you want the look to be. Sometimes the mower makes it look too tall for the scale of the pavers. In those cases we will use the weed wacker to even it out. Thanks for the question.

Are you using synthetic grass here and if so, where can I get it? - Also, what size are the pavers? Thankyou

@rhodesrevah - do you have any questions re: synthetic grass? I'm happy to answer any questions you may have - most synthetic turf is made of the same materials these days. The main difference is in the backing used for the turf - we use a 100 percent permeable backing, which allows water to drain through quickly - more so than any other.

Also attaching our recent installs with paver stones :)

Cheers!

@Elisa - artificial turf is making a surge - people are concerned about watering - both cost and resource savings. The quality today far surpasses the original grasses. EasyTurf looks and feels just like natural grass - http://www.easyturf.com/spotthefake
Check us out and let me know what questions you have.
Cheers!

Yes, it requires a high degree of maintenance skill and time. We are a qualified outfit for this type of work. We close the pool cover prior to cutting the grass.

Hi vbawabeh,

Thanks for the question. The pool is 16'x36' with a 3'-0" bluestone coping.

I hope this helps!

What type of native grass is it? I live in Texas, would this work with St. Augustine grass?

Here in Texas we use fescue that we seed over Bermuda in the winter to still have green lawns. It just dies out during our summers. I really love this and thank you for sharing. I would love to do this to my back patio some day.

I live in Northern California. I have something very similar in place and looking for the right grass / plant. I have 4" spacing between the concrete pieces (48"x48") and the area gets very warm, watering is not a problem, but the plant must be heat tolerant, this area gets 100'+ especially in summer. I do not know what type of climate your example is in. Can you make a suggestion?
