The driveway to my garage has large concrete pavers with gaps between them. I'm looking for something to plant between the pavers that will be hardy enough that a car can drive over. Area has full sun exposure. Sprinkler system covers the area. Mondo grass, sod (any specific kind?), and dachondria (sp?) have been recommended. What do you think of these? Do u have other suggestions? Thanks.

I'd avoid dichondra because the leaves will be crushed when you drive over it but creeping thyme, creeping oregano, mondo grass or Kentucky bluegrass will take the reflected heat between the pavers and will stand up well to traffic. There may be other choices available at your local garden center. Best wishes with your project!
