Grass Between Pavers

Grass paving is an environmentally friendly way of paving an area while allowing vegetation to grow. This requires the use of grass pavers, which provide several potential benefits to a project and can be used for many different applications. Installing grass pavers is a fairly simple way to pave an area. Pavers are also durable over time, but require some maintenance. This type of paving gives consumers a different option for landscaping in an area that might be just right for some projects.

Stone or concrete pavers are a great tool for creating a durable, easy-to-maintain finish on a landscaping project. Pavers can be placed with a small spacing to cover a large area or with a larger spacing to create a “stone path”. In the second case, the idea is to plant grass or other types of plants to create a well-kept space and avoid damage from erosion. You will only need a few tools for this project. To get this in your garden all you need to do is follow the steps below.

  • Choose a low growing seed to plant between your pavers. Decide if you want to use regular grass seed or if you want to try other low-growing field seeds. Depending on where you live, you may want to consider low-growing seeds in addition to grass.
  • Trim a previously seeded lawn seeder to fit in the tight spaces. Remove any flat pieces of previously planted grass and remove them from their container. Use a pair of utility shears to cut these pieces of soil into sections that are 2 to 3 inches (5.1 to 7.6 cm) wide. Place these seed and root sections directly into the holes.
  • Sprinkle plant seeds on the ground if you don’t mind waiting. Check the label on the bag of seeds to see how many seeds you need to spread in a certain amount of space. Mix a small amount of seeds into the top layer of soil, making sure to cover all the spaces between the pavers. Once the seeds are in place, use a small rake to mix them into the soil below.
  • Water the seeds on a regular basis until they’ve fully sprouted. Fill a watering can with cool water and pour it over the soil on a daily basis, or several times throughout the week. If you’d rather not worry about watering the seeds by hand, try setting up an in-line drip or sprinkler system to keep your grass hydrated.

After you have completed these four steps your patio will look great.

If you’re trying to find a happy medium between grass and pavement on your property, try using separate pavers instead! Start by digging out the area of your garden where you plan to install the pavers, then fill in that space with a thin layer of gravel and topsoil. Next, lay the pavers on the ground, leaving small spaces between each of the pieces. Once the pavers are in place, place loose pots or seeds in the ground. Keep watering and caring for the grass seed to work towards your ideal garden! Keep in mind that if you live in a sunny area, opt for plants such as dymondia or creeping thyme, or if your area is partially sunny, choose chamomile, Corsican jewel mint, Irish moss or blue star vine seeds. In a shaded area, you can choose between mondo grass seeds, sweet woodruff, or baby tears.
