PAVING THE WAY

Posted on March 02, 2012 by 1 | 0 Comments

I do not have a green thumb.  My mother is blessed with that talent, and unfortunately did not pass it onto me.  However, I do love landscape design.  I know what I like when I see it.  I have found myself pinning  lots of images with pavers.  I have always been drawn to gardens and courtyards that have an English feel to them.  I am not a minimalist when it comes to landscape design.  The more "natural" and overgrown it seems the better!  The pavers always seem to add an old world feel to landscaping, but still feel streamlined and elegant.  I especially love pavers with moss, grass, or herbs growing in between them.  I think I could keep moss alive...I think.  Below are some images of exteriors and landscaping that feature pavers.
