Q.How Do We Plant Groundcover Between Pavers In A Patio?
We want to build a patio with 24” square pavers and they need to be set in a compacted bed of crushed stone and sand. We want to keep a 2” space between the pavers to grow groundcover. If we buy a mat of groundcover, how is the best way to plant it so it survives? If we lay a little soil over the sand, will that suffice? We live in San Diego and plan to use drought tolerant ground cover and have an irrigation system to help get it established.
