Patio grass…!

We’ve started another garden experiment with a different approach to the interaction between the lawn and the patio.

I’ve always thought the boundary between the grass and patio was too stark and I like the idea of the different materials blending together and growing organically to mesh.

Here are also some other examples from tinter net which i’ve just found…

So, we’ve been leaving the grass between the paving slabs and i’ve just been going over the patio with the lawn mower on the lowest setting when I do the rest of the grass. So far, I think it’s starting to look good and minimises the sterile feeling of the patio.

This is also a good approach as it saves all the annoying scraping out along the edges of the slabs. Lots of grass looks better than bits here and there!
