Hi. Thanks for the question. It could be possible with some special detailing by your landscape architect or landscape contractor. We have one idea of putting concrete under the entire driveway as a base and mortaring the stone to it. In the gaps, you can put synthetic turf for drill holes for drainage for real grass. Hope that helps.

Hi Shirley, Thank you for your question. This job is in California, so i am not sure how it would do in Houston. I would contact a local turf grower for more information. One installation you can try is installing subsurface drip irrigation in the turf to help keep the soil moist. Hope this helps.

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!
George

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.

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?
