Is it possible to tell me how thick the bluestone is? Is it 1 inch or 2 inches. Thank you in advance for your reply.

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.

Shirley, we do this all the time in Houston using Zoysia grass. You do have to install subsurface drip irrigation though. You could use the synthetic turf but in Houston it can get really hot so if you are going to walk on it you have to irrigate and drain it as well. Who knew!

Thank you so much for the reply. I did have irrigation to the mondo but it has since been torn out and replaced with stamped concrete and lovely slate. I'm very pleased with the outcome.

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.

EasyTurf
@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!

Doesn't cutting the grass and lawn maintenance become a pain with grass blowing into the pool?

Kimberly O'Nan, yes, this type of lawn configuration would be extremely cumbersome to maintain with real grass, and indeed, clippings would inevitably end up in the pool. However, as Southwest Greens Alberta mentioned, with artificial grass installed, all of these hazards become nonissues because artificial grass doesn't require maintenance and effects no dead grass.

Thank you for your comments. Here in Hawaii grass grows fast, but I like the look. Covering the pool is the ticket. Thanks.

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?
