The Q&A Archives: plant material in between flagstone

Question: We have flagstone in our backyard and had tried to plant 4 different plants (grass) in between the stones. Is there a plant or grass material that is best for growing and the watering system is below ground (a drip) and how much water is needed? I think I might be overwatering as well. Thanks

Answer: A really good plant between flagstones in a sunny area is wooly thyme. For shady areas try Scotch Moss or Irish Moss. All will creep between the stones and all will flower during the summer months. As long as the soil drains well, a drip system should keep them happy. If the soil is soggy, reduce the amount and frequency of watering. Good luck with your landscape!
