Landscaping 101:  Pavers

I have visions for how I want to landscape my front, back and side yards. I have a pretty small plot of land, but feel fortunate that the previous owners left me a blank slate.

I am trying to be realistic about what I will be able to manage this spring/summer, and one thing I absolutely want to do is remove part of the sidewalk that extends into my backyard and create a small patio for my grill.

I know I for sure what to use pavers/grass, but there are so many options.

I love the cut out for plants used in this one.

I love the use of Blue Star Creeper between the stones in this one.

I thought I wanted honeycomb pavers, but now I'm realizing they might be more difficult to install and provide an uneven surface for the grilling station.

The blue star creeper is quite an eye catcher. I would love to try it in my own porch. Thanks for sharing. I hope to see more of your ideas and with pictures of course.
