    Not a pro here, but to answer the question as to whether the pavers should be placed on top of the grass or should the grass removed first? If you're looking for this same flush surface look, it would be best to place a paver in the desired position on top of the turf, cutting around the pavers perimeter with a long sharp tool, then remove the turf to the depth that will allow the paver to sit flush with the remaining turf. Finally place the paver in the opening left by the turf removed in the previous step. Use garden sand, and/or soil to level the paver as necessary.

    I have a little sun and lots of shade. Planted dichondra seed for back yard and between broken stones on patio and it is fabulous. Stays green even under snow in N.C. and never needs mowing unless you want a very formal look. Took lots of watering to get started, now thrives with total neglect. Gorgeous green color. Google dichondra seed. I think I bought ours from Park Seed.

    My house has a vacant space in the front yard as garden with plants on the ground and in pots, it's nice and fresh to look at but I want to extend my receiving room because it's just small for us...what design should suits that will not affect my healthy growing plants and that the outcome of the extension will just be the same as garden...

    They are made out of concrete and I had them made. They built the forms, then placed foam in the middle to take up space so they wouldn't be too heavy. Although, they were still really heavy and it took 3 guys to move them into place!

    At ModPlanters, we also carry a number of bowl planters that are very similar to the ones in this photo.

    I'm not 100% certain because I really can't see the plant close enough but my guess would be that it's Pilea depressa (Giant Baby's Tears). I usually see it sold as a houseplant (up here in Canada) but I have planted it in containers myself for a beautiful cascading green effect. I planted mine in shade. Have a look in the indoor section of your local nursery and you will find some interesting plants to grow as annuals in your containers. I hope this helps!

    Foyer. Perhaps this side yard was once a blank slate, relegated to storing trash bins. With the bold addition of three distinct components, it's now the grand entry to this property, linking the interior and exterior living spaces.1. The "doorway" appears in the form of a simple arbor. Two vertical posts are erected on substantial pedestals. The header beams are aligned with the roof, giving the structure the ideal scale. A few trellis-like crossbeams lend interest and invite a vine to climb their heights. Approaching this structure, you know exactly where to go. You can see the ultimate destination — a conversation and sitting area in the garden.2. The "flooring" is nicely aligned with the opening in the arbor, with the addition of an extra row of square pavers to form a graphic 3-by-6 tile grid. This treatment is both path and patio, inviting the addition of furniture for a variety of purposes.3. The trio of planters helps soften the home's intense white exterior and engages any pedestrians who stroll by. Three identical bowls, filled with interesting, textural plants and displayed on dramatic concrete cubes, give this space a distinct point of view.Welcome to my foyer!

    Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Modern Garden StyleMar 19, 2012

    Aspects of a traditional landscape — a paver path, large planters and an arbor leading to a seating area — get a modern take in this design. The pavers are set in a geometric grid rather than a wandering path, which gives a patiolike feeling to this narrow space. Other nontraditional features include the heavy, blocklike adobe-colored boxes along the walk that give a contemporary nod to traditional terra-cotta pots, and the pillars of the same material that tie the wood arbor they're supporting into the rest of the space.
