      Because of the abundance of natural light during the day (or the forgiveness of darkness at night), outdoor areas can take vivid color more easily than indoor rooms, especially dark or cramped indoor spaces that can feel claustrophobic when decorated with intense colors.

      3. Creeping Thyme (Thymus pseudolanuginosus and T. serpyllum)Native to Europe and North AfricaPerhaps the most popular and widely used ground cover for sunny areas, creeping thyme species hit all the right marks for a between-pavers ground cover. It grows to about 4 inches tall, tolerates foot traffic and difficult soil conditions, draws pollinators with its attractive flowers and produces a fragrance when crushed or stepped on. Woolly thyme (T. pseudolanuginosus) has fuzzy, gray-green foliage and white or pale purple flowers, while wild thyme (T. serpyllum) has brighter green leaves and pink flowers. Particularly low-growing (to 2 inches), ‘Elfin’ thyme is perfect for planting in tight spots.Great for: Mediterranean-style, cottage-style and low-water gardens; filling in cracks between pavers or flagstones in sunny areasWhere it will grow: Hardy to minus 25 degrees Fahrenheit, or minus 31.7 degrees Celsius (zones 4 to 8)Water requirement: Low to moderateLight requirement: Full sun

      The paving, by Rhodes Architectural Stone, is made of reclaimed granite from old stone lanes in China and brings a century-old tale to the modern backyard. “When they’re pulling down villages to make way for cities, some old stone alleyways are discarded in favor of new beautifully calibrated and flat pavers,” Broad says. The random shapes and lengths of the planks add an informality to the otherwise structured space.The recurring ground cover between the paving is white creeping thyme (Thymus serpyllum), which softens the overall look of this garden retreat.
